“It is possible if we are able to channel all the resources we have, our time, energy, it a collective responsibility if everybody can put all hands on deck. We have so much talents here wasting away, there is a way we can all come together and put everything we got to support this youths, to support this generation, to support, harness and polish their talent, to give them that direction they need.
“In the next five to ten years we must have to lay the foundation for this youths. You alone can not do it, it about laying a foundation that will enable a good continuity and engaging the youths and taking football to the next level in Ekiti.
“I want to see Ekiti youths been mentioned as part of the people representing Nigeria in the near future,” Zubair enthused.
