By Femi Atolagbe
In its efforts to widen the scope of Sports Development in Ondo state, the Ministry of Youth and Sports Development has given African Grassroot Football Development (AGFD)in the state the go ahead on its various activites on sports.
AGFD is an association of veteran sport administrators within and outside the state ,with the aim of developing under age football in the state and in the entire country at large.
In a letter, signed ,by the Commissioner for Youth and sports Development, Mr Dotun Owanikin and made available to the Sporting Hope .
AGFD has the evidence of CAC registration with previous dealings with Ondo State Football Association and Nigeria Football Federation.
The request to enable the organisation reach out to individuals, private organization and government at all levels in its mandate of Youth development through sports is therefore not without some merits and is hereby supported.
Its read further ,that the Ministry therefore accords recognition to the organisation, it however wishes to state that the said recognition does not in any way stop anyone from carrying out its due diligence in dealing with the body .
