One of Nigeria’s most respected sports administrators, Bukola Olopade has donated two hundred thousand Naira to the country’s foremost WhatsApp group, Nigeria Sports Mouthpiece (NSM) Rebranded.
The sports administrator said the palliative is meant to alleviate the hardship caused by the COVID-19 global health crisis on sports journalists that serve as essential workers.
The Philanthropist fondly called by his kinsmen many “Mr Talk and Do”, delivered the palliatives to the leaders of the noble social media platform for onward distribution to journalists.
He said, “Journalists across the world are one of the worse hit during the COVID-19 pandemic because the sports sector has been shut down for 3 months. Here in Nigeria, sports may not resume until the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 gives us the go-ahead.
“The palliative is to ensure that sports journalists who are also essential workers have funds to buy face masks and hand sanitizers to keep themselves free from COVID-19.
The elders of the platform (NSM) received the palliatives on behalf of the group, commending the respected sports administrator for his kind gesture.
