In an effort to curtail Youth restiveness in Kaduna State, a Senatorial Aspirant under the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC), Hon. Usman Ibrahim has organized a football competition among youth of Kaduna Central Zone.
Declaring the completion open at Birnin-Gwari Usman said he decided to organize and sponsor the competition to mentor the youth into becoming professional players in future adding that engaging the youth in a consistent
football competition would checkmate crime rate and political thuggery which he said had become a social menace of the society.
“I am so overwhelmed seeing these young boys slugging it out among themselves in an exciting football competition to keep themselves engaged.
“It is my conviction that when the momentum is sustained, it would go a long way in reducing the problem of insecurity and social vices as a result of
unemployed youth roaming our streets.
“I will sustain this competition and create more other different sports such as tennis, basketball, sprinting and handball,” Mr Ibrahim said.
