By Daily Sports Nigeria on December 1, 2023

Minister of Sports Development, Senator John Enoh, has revealed a comprehensive six-point agenda themed W.A.I.F.A.R. to drive sports development in the country.

The agenda was unveiled to commemorate his 100 days in office and they are hinged on welfare, grassroots development, infrastructure, funding and revitalisation of school sports.

Enoh alongside 45 other ministers were sworn in by President Bola Tinubu on August 21.

According to Enoh, the strategic framework will be used to guide sports development from 2024 to rejuvenate and restore sports to its former glory, consolidating its significance within Nigeria’s cultural and competitive landscape.

“This agenda is meticulously designed to bolster growth and excellence within the country’s sports sector,” the minister said.

“We must key into President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s renewed hope agenda and strive to propel the sports industry to newer heights. President Tinubu’s genuine enthusiasm for sports underscores his unwavering commitment to fostering an environment where the sports sector not only flourishes but also reaches unparalleled success.”

As contained in the breakdown of the theme, the ministry will enable a welfare system that caters to serving and retired athletes as well as an annual recognition platform just as sports federations will be reorganised for effectiveness.

Having done a tour of some major facilities in the country, Enoh also vowed to build and revamp major and grassroots sports facilities, reactivate school sports as well and provide adequate funding through collaborative models between the government and the private sector.
