Egba Chief Calls For Revamping Of Sporting Activities In Schools To Reduce Crime

The First Alawo-Erin of Egbaland and Chairman of  Ogun State Alternate Medicine Board, Balogun (Dr.) Nurudeen Olaleye has stressed the urgent need to .
revamp sporting activities, particularly inter-house sports competitions in primary schools as part of measures  to engage learners positively and curb societal ills  

The Chairman made the  call while addressing spectators at the annual inter-house sports of U.B.E Model Nursery and Primary School, Abiola- way, Abeokuta.

Olaleye who was the chairman of the event, attributed lack of parental care as one of the key factors missing in the upbringing of children, adding that inadequate knowledge on how to engage children from their childhood days are also factors responsible for the decay in the society.

He recalled that in the 70s and early 90s, a lot of athletes were discovered through annual inter-house sport events and making their living as professionals from younger age, while many children looked up to them as role models.

"Let me sincerely commend and congratulate the management of this school, Parents and Teachers Association for organising this event. This is one of the major antidotes that can curb societal ills and crime rate among our children’’, the Chairman said.

The OGAMB Boss , appealed to the parents to always give their children  adequate attentions with proper monitoring  and not leaving them alone with their teachers only while urging teachers to always do their best in order to justify their earnings from government
