FIFA Forward Sport Discussion on Nigerian Seminar. Nigéria defeated São Tomé in a qualifying game for the CAF Africa Cup of Nations 2023. The Nigerian team won the game with 10-0 figures and acquired the biggest victory ever. On 13th June, the nation got its hands over the superb victory off the pitch in the history of Super Eagles.
PAULESI (Pan African University for Life and Earth Sciences Institute in Ibadan) came ahead with a workshop on the Synergy of FIFA FORWARD Programme & African Sustainable Sport Policy. The workshop was hosted between the 14th to 16th of June with plenty of speakers and students from all around the continent. Every workshop attendee in the event facilitates progress and success.
Massa Paasewe Johnson, a PAULESI student thanked the entire team of FIFA and PAULESI for the helpful and unique workshop. Some even commented that the session was quite an eye-opener for them. The workshop highlights all sorts of insights and interactions related to the Confederation of African Football (CAF). It was a mind-blasting experience and boosts the passion for sports in Africa and other parts of the world.
FIFA, African Union, and CAF signed up the memorandum and that is what made the workshop possible. It led to the creation of joint strategies and programs dealing with anti-corruption, good governance, studies, education, safety, and security related to the games.
Professor Esther Akinlabi, PAULESI director stated that he feels obliged to host this sports workshop. PAULESI has agreed that the collaboration with FIFA and the University of Ibadan has proven to be a game-changer for the event. The participants are feeling delighted while getting to know about activities, FIFA, and the continent of Africa. What we are witnessing here is just the beginning of something great. It is the journey of enhancing human capacity and African administration.
In the end, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) came to visit the workshop and address the scene of sports administration here. The match security and safety regulations are promoted with the collaboration between the CAF and FIFA. The future of sports administration is highly bright and engaging in Africa. The young people are feeling more interested while getting involved with future opportunities. Solomon Mudege, FIFA Head of Development Programmes Africa addresses all these concerns at the workshop.
He further added that they all are feeling organized while dealing with PAULESI. Witnessing such diverse students in the workshop is what showcases the great experience.
