The Niger State Government on Wednesday said it would incorporate sports into the curriculum of its primary and secondary schools.

Mamman Bosso, the State Commissioner for Youths and Sports Development, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Minna that this would encourage talented youths to get acquainted at the early stage of their lives.

“We are making arrangements to include sports into our primary and secondary education curriculum in order to develop grassroots sports. The state government will also rehabilitate sporting facilities across the state to ensure that the policy succeeds,” Bosso said.

He said the ministry would continue to discuss with its education counterpart for a full implementation of the programme.

According to the commissioner, the state governor is passionate about the plan and has given directives to that effect.

NAN reports that the state government has already commenced rehabilitation work on the two major sport facilities in Minna to boost sporting activities.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.
