The President of the Nigeria Volleyball Federation, Mr Musa Nimrod, has again shown his love and passion for the development of sports by supporting the 6th edition of the Lagos inter-schools Sports Fiesta.

The event coordinator, Tayo Adeyemo, said this in a statement on Sunday in Lagos.

Adeyemo said Nimrod had donated trophies and medals for the volleyball event just as he did in 2021.

During the presentation of the items to the organisers, Wonderland Sports, Nimrod commended them for taking volleyball to schools.

He said the development of the sports should start from the schools that were the bedrock of the future of the sport.

“For the sport to grow, we need to focus more on grassroots, and our schools are the best place to start.

“We at the federation are ready to support volleyball at the grassroots level because this will help us discover future players who will replace the aging ones.

“We are happy with what Wonderland sports are doing, and you can see that it’s a programme we should all support, especially since it is endorsed by the Lagos State Government,” Nimrod said.

Adeyemo added that the competition, in its sixth season, will commence on May 31 at the various schools and centres in Lagos, with the grand finale billed for Agege stadium.
