In anticipation of your urgent attention and affirmative action on the issue, I solicit your highest cooperation. In so doing to ensure that, we rectify the woes in our sports for the good of our youth cohort to blossom in tandem with our government’s desire as enshrined in our Vision 2020 and PAGE blue-print dossier which have the youth cohort as key and central to the AGENDA for development for our dear motherland.
