V/ball Division 1 League: Winning all our matches is my priority says Badamosi

The head coach of Kwara United Volleyball Club, Adewale Badamosi has revealed that his mission is to win all his matches at the second phase of the 2021 National Division 1 League in Abuja.

Kwara United VC won their second match against Caliphate Spikers of Sokoto 3-0 (25-22, 25-15, 25-12) at the indoor sports hall of Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja on Sunday.

Badamosi said despite losing one match at the first phase of the division 1, they were in third position due to winning some matches by 3-2 major scores which was not good for the team.

He said, “Our mission at the second phase of the National Division 1 League is to win the remaining matches because Wikki Spikers of Bauchi and Kada Kings are above us and you all know that only two teams will advance to next season’s Nigeria Volleyball Premier League.”

Commenting on his victory against Caliphate Spikers, Badamosi said, “This is not the first time we met the Caliphate Spikers of Sokoto but we met during the first phase and we defeated them three against zero. This is the second time we are meeting them and we also defeated them.”

He said Oluyole Spikers are a good side but winning the game against them is the most important task today.

He said, “Kwara United Volleyball Club are here to show their fitness and experience in the game so by the time they continue playing more improvement will definitely come. Our next match is against Oluyole Spikers of Oyo state today (Monday); we met them in the first phase in Kaduna state and I can testify that they are a very young good side.

“By the time we meet them on the court, we will dictate the game and the difference will surely be clear this time around.”

Huawei says it plans to invest US$150 million in digital talent development over the next five years, noting that the programme will be beneficial to about 3 million youths.


“We are announcing Huawei’s Seeds for the Future Program 2.

0. As part of our commitment to continuously develop talent, we will invest US$150 million in this program over the next five years and help college students and young people improve their digital skills. This program is expected to benefit another 3 million people,” said Huawei’s Chairman Liang Hua.


The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami, stated that “Nigeria is positioning to be the continent’s leader in digitalisation. Burkina Faso already has a ministry of digital economy but we have so many advantages” The advantages, according to him, include the country’s population and location, the contribution of the ICT to Gross Domestic Product, and the level of the ICT literacy among Nigerians.


He added that the government would henceforth be proactive in the ICT through effective application of emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Robotics, and Virtual Reality.


He noted that in a few years, Nigerians might no longer need to travel to India or other foreign countries for medical treatment, as surgeries could be performed on patients anywhere in the world by means of 5G technology.


He urged the 10 Nigerian students selected from different institutions for the Huawei internship programme to see themselves as future entrepreneurs in order to make the best of the opportunity.


“The ICT has the potential of employing and lifting millions of Nigerians out of poverty,” the minister added.
He commended Huawei for investing in the youths as part of its corporate social responsibility engagements.


The Managing Director of Huawei Technologies Nigeria Limited, Mr Trevor Liu stated that Nigeria has the largest population in Africa. These youth are the continent’s greatest resource which will power the economy in the future.


Huawei partners with the Nigerian governments, education institutes and industry to equip the future leaders with the latest knowledge at the highest global levels and provide them opportunities to apply the knowledge in order to achieve a better future for the continent.
