That a state can be the heart beat of sports and entertainment if theinvest in facilities that will create such a platform that will allow the youths to embrace it at early age.
Because talents captured early harnesses the future. I remember when I was in Togo in late 2000, every morning you will see everybody old and young running and exercising by the beach it was such an amazing sight that people care so much about their health and makes such sacrifice of time .
Here the state government initiate biking every Sunday and the population has embraced it even foreigners now bike Sunday morning and still go to church or other activities.
Exercise is wealth, that requires no money but your time when am back in Lagos and Umuahia I do street jogging but always scared because the cars wants to run me into the gutter. As early as 5am when one can see little daylight as streetlight is not working. It could be more fun if you see many people participate in early morning jog or run. The motivation one gets is working out or jogging and see people of like mind jogging along same path. You build positive health bond.
State talk about sanitation day without talking about jogging and running and general well being of the citizens The president here ride his morning bike every Sunday like all citizen and interacts well. I ride pass him from a close distance and said hi. And he greeted back with a smile.
Nigerians need more physical health than religious bigotry that has trampled our soul into a box. Physical health in Indonesia is saving the government health cost and creating a very massive health institutions that generate more jobs like personal trainers that earn not less than a minimum wage of $1000 a month. Through training old and young on how to live a healthy life and keep fit.
The health business is huge but lacks investment or attention from private sectors. all American gym and health club are now in Indonesia fighting for the market. Gold gym.fitness first.etc.
