Ngerem explains interest in youth development

Former Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) President, Dan Ngerem, who has been appointed an Olympafrica International Foundation ambassador, has promised to work towards promoting youth development through sports.

Olympafrica International Foundation was founded in 1989 by former International Olympics Committee (IOC) President, Juan Antonio Samaranch, in conjunction with the Association of National Olympic Committee of Africa (ANOCA).

The objective is to promote Olympics’ social values in Africa, especially, in the area of youth sports development, youth centres, education, health, training, and social economical initiatives that will impact in the life of athletes when their sports career is over.

Speaking on joining the ambassador’s club for the organisation with headquarters in Dakar, Senegal, hosts of the Youth Olympics in 2026, Ngerem said that his interest is to see that youths are empowered through sports such that they would have something to fall back and have a good life when they retire from competition.

“By 2030 Africa will constitute over 42 per cent of global youths, according to World Economic Forum and I am pleased that the Olympafrica is at the epicenter of reimagining youth engagement, youth empowerment, nurturing our youths through sports,” said Mr. Ngerem

“I’ve partnered with Olympafrica in some projects and so I am particularly pleased to act as an ambassador to Olympafrica to foster this excellent engagement.
“Indeed the empowerment vision in Africa is the gold standard others should copy and paste.

“Why am I interested? Because there should be life after sports, sustainable, fruitful life after sports, because the ovation will stop one day.”
