I have listened to many Sports Commentators advancing reasons why sports in general and in particular, football, continue to take a nose dive in international competitions.
But what they’ve failed to realize is the simple fact that sports cannot progress in this country of ours when we do not have a sports policy that is expected to guide us through the technical and managerial aspects for instance, of football and indeed other sporting disciplines, like our counterparts in the sub region are doing.

The National Sports Council (NSC), which is responsible for the conduct and administration of sports in this country, is yet to come out with a Sports Policy since its establishment since time immemorial. Rather, the NSC is busy writing and dispatching letters to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) on very trivial issues that have consequently splashed in their faces resulting in shame and humiliation.
