THE POWER OF SPORTS FOR DEVELOPMENT
Sports is like electricity, it carries great power that can light up a community. Its power reforms and transforms much better than a transformer. Like current, sports is silent but salient to any society whose dream is eminence.
When sports is plugged into the society, it creates the possibilities for both women and men to express their creative capabilities. Now that’s development.
A house divided against itself will fall because for a nation to thrive, we must be the drive. Call it necessity. But what can bind the insanity of humanity? Nothing but the chains of sports. For the chains of sports binds us together more than fetters and when we come together, we can build a tower.
Again that’s development.
That reminds me of a small inferior village way back in the seventies called Brazil, it had no glory to brag in but much zeal. The current of sports surged and the timid youths responded with zeal.
So the light of sports shone on them and pulled out their talents that his in the hole and reformed them into great stars like Serena Williams and Azeezat , resulting in the posterity of prosperity of that great society. Wow! What Power.
Now listen, the aim of sports is not all about the game for the gain, because sports does not just recreate health, it also creates wealth. It is not just for the fun of it, but also for the funds from it (I call it fun funds)
Finally, the power of sports is available to any society, the question is;
Do you want to see the light of sports?
Then PLUG in!
Do you want to experience the health and wealth of sports?
Then PLAY it!
How about enjoying the gains from the game?
Then DREAM It!
And if you want to see the power of sport for development;
Go ahead, PLUG IN, PLAY IT, and DREAM IT.
