He said grassroot sport engagement plays a vital role in the fight against insecurity and social vices among the youth.

He also blamed the lack of good sport infrastructures at the grassroot on lack of visionary leadership in the local government, constituency and the State.  

"It's unfortunate that we don't have good sport facilities in the various communities in our constituency, that alone is a sign of leadership failure in the local, constituency and the State. It simply means we lack visionary leaders. Sport is one of the major ways we can fight insecurity and the various social vices around communities.

He promised to invest on grassroots sport development when elected. "I want to reiterate here that grassroot sport development would be one of my area of focus when elected to the house of representatives.
