    God forgive me, this video reminds me of when naija played basketball against America at the Olympics.
    Regardless, good job getting children involved in sports.

    All these sorts of money making schemes are the only thing our leaders excel in.
    What crap is this?
    Just provide and maintain sports facilities in cities and beyond the cities,kids will express their talent and budding talents can be harnessed and groomed.
    What is the relationship between kids in sports and Ice Prince? The other day it was BOI announcing D’Banj as an ambassador.
    How many kids can recognise Ms. Odunsi on a billboard?
    These clownish leaders of ours are just maximizing our docility.Anything just seems to go around here.

    I know Nigerian youths need to be encouraged in sports. Looks like inter house sports n d likes have been relegated in schools unlike those days. But I’m not sure about d idea of ambassadors, looks like ministers n parastatal heads r competing on who can get d biggest stars associated to their portfolios n that’s cheapens d whole point. How about improve sport facilities in govt schs, bring back inter house, school, state sport competitions.
