Shame on Corporate Organisations for Not Sponsoring Sports in Kano State –Galadima
The executive chairman, Kano State Sports Commission (KSSC), Ibrahim Galadima (MFR) has lamented the absence of private sector-led sports investments in the state.
Galadima said “It is a shame that in Kano no company is taking responsibility for even one sports, everything is solely done by the government.”
He spoke while addressing participants at the second stage of investigative journalism training organized by the Kano chapter of Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) held at KSSC conference hall on Monday.
He decried that the situation has degenerated to an ignominy, where companies shun sports activities, noting that cooperate social responsibility is also not been extended to the sector, stressing that major sports sponsorship are no longer available to sporting clubs and associations operating in the state.
He said “we will continue to speak our minds, we have the responsibility to develop sports, the private sector should support our young ones.
Galadima appealed to the private sector operators to come to the rescue by taking off some of the burden of sole sports sponsorship that is currently overwhelming the state government.
The KSSC boss cautioned sports administrators to be weary of actions that scare away investors and sponsors from investing in sports sectors, telling them that sport is a viable sector that should be packaged to attract the private sector to tap into its economic potentialities.
