  1. The communiqué also commends the NFF for their enormous support of football development in Nigeria. We charge the NFF to improve the football academy in Nigeria by providing training platforms for academic owners in FIFA CONNECT and IMS (Transfer Machine System), which will enable quality data collection in Nigeria as a whole.
  2. The participants eulogized the highly productive resource personnel for their education, wisdom, and intellectual survey. The group includes: Mr. Nweri Emmanuel, Mr. Oyedeji Olamide, Dr. Toyin Aluko, Dr. George Ashiru, Dr. Mrs. Oluwaseun Nariwoh, Prof. Fumilayo Leah-Dominic, Dr. Toba Bamitele, and Prof. Fasan Clement.
  3. The participants applauded the Nigerian youths and parents for standing by the proprietors and owners of academics in Nigeria. Without the raw materials, there will be no product. We therefore advise and strongly encourage parents to allow their children (especially girls) to fully participate in education and sports all over Nigeria.
  4. We have commended all the principal actors and facilitators of this event, in particular LASORA SPORTS CONSULTANCY AGENCY, for their courage, dedication, tenacity, and perseverance to see to the logical conclusion of this intellectually inclined program for this sport administration course (OLYMPICS SOLIDARITY/NIGERIA OLYMPICS COMMITTEE SPORT ADMINISTRATION COURSE).

In conclusion, the communiqué appeals to successful participants to reflect all they have learned in their various communities (school, academy, state, and general environment).
