As you know charity begins at home. The innocent children of Osun state I must develop and I assure you that the state will witness positive turnaround in 2020.
“Osun State has great potentials, the chief coach at the helm Lekan Adediran is one of my products. Adediran has a good technical team focusing on grassroots and in fact they won bronze medal at the last youth games in Ilorin.
“I can tell you for free that the investment for me personally especially when I am now directly involved; adequate volleyball equipment will be made available to Osun state through international sources.We will also be reaching out to notable organisations for financial backing”.
The ex international beach volleyball player said his direct partnership with Mikasa USA will help rebrand Osun State volleyball program.
He said, “Osun produced top volleyball players in the past including myself due to proper government funding and availability of standard volleyball equipment. The state procured Mikasa balls directly from Mikasa Japan but along the line our country’s economy fizzled.
“My current direct partnership with Mikasa USA will help rebrand Osun State volleyball program. Those equipment like balls and Nets will be available to Osun State now. This will help us to jump start grassroots volleyball programs”
