Amputee football federation president laments dearth of sponsors

Lagos –  Abibat Ladidi, the President of Nigeria Amputee Football Federation (NAFF), on Wednesday lamented the poor response of potential sponsors to the body proposals.

Ladidi told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on telephone that the body’s programme of activities for the quarter had not attracted the expected response.

She noted that as a result of the problem, the federation set up a marketing committee, saddled with the responsibility of getting individual and corporate bodies to sponsor its activities.

According to her, effort made by the committee to get the attention of enthusiasts has not yielded positive results.

“The situation of our sport is really pathetic because we have not been able to hold a single programme since this year even with activities lined out in our annual schedule.

“Instead of depending on the Ministry of Youth and Sports for support, we set up a marketing committee to market the sport so as to attract sponsorship.

“Unfortunately, promises from some companies and individuals are not forthcoming, hence, affecting our activities,’’ she said.

The NAFF president appealed to all fans to sponsor of its activities.

“We have widened the scope of our sponsorship drive to NGOs and religious organisations; we want to bring positive change to amputee football.

“We will appreciate any support to execute our lined up programmes and purchase crutches, gift items and jersey,’’ she added. (NAN)
