BY CHRISTIAN EZE
Ojone Football Club, Ogwashi – Uku, Delta State is as an emerging phenomenon that will take over the scene like the red colour which dominates its environ on a given day due to the rationale behind its establishment.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Club, Francis Marvis Odioko while speaking with newsmen at Asaba, yesterday, disclosed that the primary purpose for establishing the Club resonates on the need to put young talented youths off the streets by keeping them busy with things that would affect them positively in the nearest future.
Odioko noted that many youths would be very useful if they find themselves engaged in one meaningful thing or the other hence the need for the Club which obviously has become an avenue to reach out to the needy and less privilege youths in the society and make them have a good sense of belonging.
He said that there are several reasons why people venture into establishing football ciubs but this one is not based on the derivable financial benefits as his aim is mainly to remove youths from the streets and engage them meaningfully without recourse to what he stands to gain financially.
The C E O further said that there is greater joy and satisfaction for one who becomes an instrument in the hand of God to make people become responsible in life.
“The satisfaction one derives from helping others, especially those in serious needs are unquantifiable” He observed.
Though the Club is about kicking off by this Monday, Lucky Sunday, one of his close and reliable associate disclosed that, it will be all encompassing as every achievable goal in football clubs will not be left out including academy, Grassroot development and other age grade category of the game.
He particularly explained that the first focus will be the Under 17, Under 20 and Under 23 tournaments. He added that they will take part in all tournaments and championships when they are fully on board.
