The Media Director of the FCT Handball Association, Mr Amaechi Agbo confirmed the development to newsmen in Abuja on Friday
Speaking with some journalists who came to cover the matchday 3 games at the Multi-purpose Handball Indoor Sports Hall, Old Parade Ground, Garki Abuja, Mr Agbo expressed delight that a global Channel with propensity have identified the “little work” the Handball Association is doing in the federal capital.
Mr Agbo lauded Nigeria SuperSport reporter, Mr Bowie Attamah who got in touch with him via the phone, added that no sports or sporting competition can thrive without the involvement of the media.
“Few days before the tournament got underway, I got a call from Mr Bowie Attamah who told me that he works with SuperSport, that he had read about the FCT Handball grassroots competition and will be coming over from Lagos to cover the tournament.
“On the day the competition started he sent messages requesting that I furnished him with the programme schedule and on Friday, he arrived the venue of the competition.
“We are delighted that our brand is being acknowledged all over the world. The publicity the competition received is unprecedented and I want to gave kudos to the Chairman of FCT Handball Association, Ambassador Dr Edward Olutoke and the Secretary, Mrs Hulda Nkwocha for having faith in my capacity,” he said.
He expressed appreciation to the media organisations that have supported the board so far.
“Yea, we are very grateful to several media organisations that have supported us in this competition. From the inauguration of the board earlier in the year to now, the media mileage FCT handball have received cannot be quantified.
“We want to thank AIT, NTA, ITV, Trust TV, Radio Nigeria, Vision FM, online newspapers – BSN Sports, gleamernews, Exclusivenews, Best Choice Sports, among others for the huge support. There will be no sports without the media and we cannot take this privilege for granted,” he concluded.
