NRFF Set To Develop Rugby in Kogi


The Nigeria Rugby Football Federation has expressed its readiness to develop the game in Kogi, the Confluence State.
 
Our Kogi State Correspondent, reports that the Development Officer of NRFF  Wuraola  Hussain made this known in an interview with Newsmen on Monday.
 
According to her, the Federation is partnering with the State Chapter headed by Mrs. Olufunke Kanjuni and Traditional Rulers to help develop the game in the State.
 
She noted that Rugby, which is usually described as a hooligans game is another way of curtailing youth restiveness by engaging them meaningfully to be productive and responsible in the society.
 
"Our target is everybody, the youths and most especially, secondary school Students, Grassroots dwellers, Universities as well as adults that will love and want to play the game. We are open to all" she stated.
 
She pointed out that there is Rugby for special people (people living with disabilities) such as wheelchair rugby, deaf rugby among others.
 
The Rugby Development Officer urged the government and people of Kogi State to embrace the game as it has a lot of benefits for both young and old.
 
She said "I want to charge Kogi people to embrace the game as it has a lot of benefits. There are opportunities for the youths to play professional and international Rugby and earn good money. There  are also opportunities for scholarships because it is an international game"
 
Wuraola, said Nigeria is the fifth Rugby fastest growing country in the world, saying both men and women are doing well in the Competition.
 
She added that the Federation has League in the country which will commence soon, pointing out that it will be played based on Geopolitical zones.
