He said: “Football is entertaining, football brings us together in Nigeria. More than anything, football helps people in terms of being fit, it creates a job. It provides an opportunity for our young people to stay out of trouble. So we wanted to see how we can get involved, how we can help.
“We chose to reward the people in the front so that they can pull the other people. We would like to see in the next five years that our stadiums are as full as premier league stadiums. We are not going to do it alone, but we will do it with the rest of the society.”
