Category Business Manager- Beverages Central and West Africa region of Nestle Milo, Samuel Osafo, says his outfit will continue to support the development and promotion of basketball at the Junior High level across the length and breath of the country.
Osafo who attended the Milo Junior Ball competition was overly impressed with the huge turn out at the El-Wak stadium as the young ballers from 16 basic schools entertained the crowd with some sublime piece of basketball skills and character.
The concluding round of the 2010 Milo Junior Ball has being fixed for Saturday March 27 after a heavy downpour interrupted the semi-final fixtures.
Osafo says his organisation will not relent in her effort to offer help to the game of basketball which has become the second most preferred sport amongst the growing youth in the West African country.
He told basketballghana.com: ‘With what I have seen here today and the number of young people who came here, I am convinced that this is the right way to go in helping to continue the promotion of the game.’
‘We are considering taken this to the other regions in the near future and also include girls’.
‘Basketball is a fine game and it is obvious that the young people love it and we can only continue to help in our own way to develop this and make it work.’
‘Milo is the energy food drink of future champions and that is what these young ones have exhibited today and we are proud to be part of this great sport.’
