Yobe Govt. empowers Para-Soccer Players

Unread postby Wsj » Wed May 16, 2018 2:33 pm

The head coach of Yobe Para-soccer team, Mohammed Bashiru, on Wednesday in Abuja said Yobe State was set to eradicate poverty by empowering Para-soccer players in the state.

Bashiru told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the state governor, Ibrahim Gaidam, had been giving the state Para-soccer team allowance every month.

He said that the state governor has always been supporting the team at local and national competitions.

“The state government has been motivating the team since they joined Para-soccer tournament, it has been encouraging us morally, physically and financially, which is the most important thing.

“The state governor is paying them minimum wage, which will reduce poverty level, he also empowered our atheletes by putting them in some handworks.

“They received salary every month from the state government as a player because most of them are bread winners of their families and some of them have their own businesses.

“The aim of the Government is to take them away from street begging and say no to violence,’’ he said.

Bashiru said Yobe team would work hard to win the National League Championship coming up in Katsina in August.

Yobe team won the just concluded First National Open Para-soccer Championship at the package B of the National Stadium Abuja.
