“The board upon arrival have decided to make shooting a household name, hence we are planning to build shooting centres in the country to complement the already existing ones. Bauchi, Kano and Zamfara states will add to the centers in Lagos, Ogun, Delta, Akwa Ibom, Benin, Bayelsa, Cross Rivers and Kaduna states”, he said.
He revealed that one of the best shooting facilities centres is located in Rivers State.
On the issue of sponsorship, the President said; “We are hoping that with this synergy with the media, our sponsorship drive will be more aggressive because the media can help in telling Nigerians what we do as a Federation”.
He added that the federation has began talks with some foreign embassies and few have shown interest.
