Chioma Ajunwa wants support for women footballers

08 April 2014, 16:59Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Olympic gold medalist, Chioma Ajunwa has called on administrators and stakeholders to support young women footballers in the country.

Speaking during a football match to honour grassroots women football players and coaches, and to celebrate the first International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, Ajunwa said youngsters need more encouragement for brighter future.

“The women’s game as a tool for development is a good one, the more we encourage these youngsters the more our country will benefit from them.

Ajunwa commended the organizer, Pepsie Adiukwu, for the courage to put such event together.

“It’s great how Pepsie Adiukwu is constantly motivating them. We need development to make our world a better place and have peace.”

As part of the day’s theme – to encourage and motivate for development and peace – two identical golden trophies were presented to both teams as well as golden medals.

Speaking on the reason for this, the organizer and multiple award-winning TV presenter, Adiukwu said “There are no losers here today, this game is about encouragement, we are all winners.”

"It’s something that we are delighted to do. In Nigeria, we desperately need peace and without development we can’t have peace, this United Nations and International Olympic Committee initiative is good and we are happy to contribute to it.”

The MVP award went to Yemisi Olabimpe.
