Written by thereachfm on February 19, 2019
Vice President, Africa Taekwondo Federation (ATF), Nnaji Jonathan, yesterday said that lack of sponsorship was a major setback for sports development in Nigeria.
Jonathan told newsmen in Abuja that the Ministry of Youths and Sports should look inward and pay more attention and support sports federations.
He further called on the government to put in place a system that will help individuals and corporate bodies to have interest in sports sponsorship.
Jonathan, however, commended NTF for successfully hosting the 2019 International Taekwondo Open, adding that it was a good opportunity for young taekwondo athletes to get more experience and excel in future competitions.
