SPORTS DEVELOPMENT, NDI ANAMBRA AND THE IFEANYI UBAH EXAMPLE
Sport has the power to change the world.
It has the power to unite in a way that little else does.
It speaks to the youths in a language they can understand.
Sport creates hope where once lies despair.
It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers.
It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination.
It is often said that SPORTS has an inherent ability to bring people together, particularly the youths, and yet until recently, the tremendous potential of sports in achieving youth developmental objectives has been grossly under utilized.
*By its very nature, sports encourages participation bridging National, Ethnic, Social and Religious Divides*
*It is this vision that shaped the mindset of Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah and spurred him on to venture into sports development which he believes will help curb many societal vices among the youth population of Anambra State and beyond*
This dream that gave rise to what today is a World Class Stadium a.k.a the #fortress the home ground of our darling team the FC Ifeanyi Ubah football club, nicknamed the Anambra warriors all single handedly brought into existence with the personal resources of the Distinguished Senator
*You need to visit the stadium on a match day to have a feel of the atmosphere which is best experienced than described*
*Where a thunderous sea of voices of Ndi Anambra in unison chorus the anthem as follows ....
We are great,
we are born winners.
Shining bright like a star.
The gift of God to Africa,
FC Ifeanyi Ubah ! .
United we stand, hand in hand,
Brringing glory to our land.
Anyi bu ndi nmeri,
Anyi ga a di GI de.
Football Club Ifeanyi Ubah.
Anyi bu Ndi Nmeri,
Amambra warriors ooooo.......
Football Club Ifeanyi Ubah.......!!!!
I still have that nostalgic feeling of being a proud Anambra son whenever i recall my personal experiences there standing with one hand on the chest , legs akimbo and head held high
*Little wonder the name Ifeanyi Ubah reverbrates in all the nooks and crannies of the state and the youths love him so much*
And yet this is just one of his numerous investments in Anambra !
As the Guber polls draws near , when they come to tell you stories of their PHD and Doctorates in Dubai Taiwan, pls ask them this very vital questions
Who you help ?
Where are your investments in Anambra ?
Maka na Ndi be anyi si na obu na isi aru ka esi ama uto nsi
Please listen carefully to the lyrics of the attached video ,the second anthem of the club !
*As you go to church today especially as Nwa Afo Anambra , pls spare a word of prayer for Senator Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah that the Good Lord will complete the good works he is using him to do for his people*
Happy Sunday folks
