Lagos school seeks stakeholder support for sport


The owner of Topdeal College, Dr. Oladeji Akinola, called on sports industry players to support the development and growth of sports activities in schools.

Akinola said this during the school’s first inter-house sports competition held at the LASUSTECH campus, Ikorodu.

He also complained that sport was not taken seriously in the education sector.

Stakeholders really have to do a lot. They must support sports with equipment and facilities. They must make sport a priority for young and talented boys and girls.

Akinola said the essence of sport is to enhance balanced performance between body and brain.

”Today’s event is to make us aware of the importance of sport in academia. Students are not meant to be confined to the four walls of the classroom. As you can see, we have other schools competing in house sports; it is valuable and essential that sport is taken seriously in our university environment”.

”There should be a balance between the body and the brain. You know that sport improves psychomotor neurons. This is what we hope to achieve.

”Sport is not taken seriously in the education sector. Public schools always do better because of the large complexes they usually have.”

Opportunity chairman and Green House boss Mr Jones Aboh urged students to be diligent in their studies, adding there was no shortcut to success.

“I would like to inform our dear students that there is no shortcut to success. You must be diligent and hardworking to make Topdeal proud. Remember that you are the future of tomorrow and one day the baton of leadership will be passed to you”.
