His colleague in Ikeja, Engr. Mojeed Balogun who's a lover of grassroots sports said it was necessary to sport the youths at this trying time. 

He expressed his delight with the initiative by NSF-USA as it's first of its kind by any group to the area council, as the Federation is giving youth players a sense of belonging.


Balogun craved for the Federation to continue with the good work as the Council was ready to render all the support needed in making sure the packages are distributed without hitches.

NSF-USA who annually celebrates Nigeria's Independence in diaspora with a football tournament in the United States, could not hold one this year due to the novel Coronavirus outbreak, rather channelled it resources to giving out relief package as a way of cushioning the effect of the novel Coronavirus on players in the grassroots.

Distribution of the COVID-19 relief package on Thursday (15th, October) and Friday (16th, October) at the two Local Government councils will start at 11am prompt.
