Bringing People Together With Sports

Ardent Polo fans will tell you that being a spectator to the game can be as exciting as playing it. And perhaps there is no better judge than some of the well-known polo players and supporters, including Mohammed Babangida. At a time when African participation in international sports was at a definite minimum, Nigerian Polo gets global appeal after the Dubai fest. The game seemed to be a harbinger of good things to come, and has likely strengthened the relationship between the nations. The involvement of the prominently placed Mohammed Babangida has further boosted the appeal of the tournament.

The presence of royalty can do a great deal of good not only to the sportive spirit, but can influence domestic relations too it seems. Not to mention that the added association from the likes of Mohammed Babangida can bring Africa and its sporting teams to the global front.
