• Says Nigerian Sports Journalists Amongst Most Hardworking Worldwide

The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, yesterday, felicitated with sports journalists across the country and beyond, as this year’s International Sports Journalists Day was celebrated world wide.

Dare, a journalist, said that the profession is a noble one reserved for hardworking personalities, who work round the clock, all year-round, to give sports the needed reportage.

“This day deserves to be celebrated, as I am a sports journalist myself, and I know the efforts and passion they put into their job daily.

“Today, I celebrate sports journalists, who have made immeasurable sacrifice for sports across the globe, especially in Nigeria,” he said.

He added, “in Nigeria, they rank very high among professionals, who put so much passion into their work, no matter what they face.

“You have not paid attention to the hazards of the job, but instead you have chosen to be partners in the development of sports. This, in itself, calls for celebration and I join in this celebration.”

The 2022 event themed: “Securing a Sustainable and Peaceful Future For All,” is being celebrated by sports journalists, media organisations and related industries across the world since 1994.
