Responding from questions from newsmen at the Kaduna International

Commenting on the development of the game of Polo, he said that the
Federation has been promoting a youth development programme for years and it has been ensuring the entrant of new players into the game
When asked if he has a team that he is currently sponsoring, he
explained that he currently sponsors several teams that participate

Ogboro will emerge to compete for the highest trophies.
On the just concluded Kaduna Tournament, he described it as fantastic.
“It was electric and very interesting. All the teams that participated
