Bill for sports university passes second reading


A bill to establish a Federal Sports University sponsored by the Chairman, Senate Committee on Youths and Sports Youths, Senator Obinna Ogba, passed its second reading on the 19th May plenary.

The bill which was first read November 5, 2019, seeks the establishment of the sports university in Ebonyi State and to make comprehensive provisions for its due management and administration.

The essence of the specialised ivory tower, according to Ogba, is “to enable youths develop in various sporting endeavours in an academically-charged environment.”

The lawmaker told reporters in Abuja that the nation’s sports sector has high potential and requires high level of technical, scientific and administrative skills to drive it.

“The University of Sports will help further advance knowledge through research and nurture unique innovations in sporting science and technology,” Ogba added.
