Sports Enthusiast Harps On Developing New Talents In Nigeria

A sports enthusiast has donated books to Children of Yafa Football Academy as part of efforts to build a solid foundation for the youngsters to thrive in sports.

According to Helen Prest Ajayi, sports must be combined with education as this is the only way to compete favourably in sporting activities internationally.

Helen Prest Ajayi who was Miss Nigeria (1979) said the gesture was her own way of giving back to the society.

She further stressed on the need to catch young talents at an early age as this would go a long way in harnessing their talents to full potential.

Proprietor of Yafa Football Academy, Olayinka Olagbemiro thanked the donor for the good will.

He also stressed the need for young footballers to embrace education and not only football which he said had a great advantage.

Yafa Academy is made up of 200 children between the ages of 3 and 18.
