Sport is any form of athletic activity that requires skills and physical exertion of an individual or team governed by a set of rules or custom and usually of a competitive nature.
Sports development in Nigeria is still not exploited in full. It can be used for various human developments- initiatives; to bridge ethnic and cultural divides, promote tolerance of any form, non discrimination, create jobs and advocate healthy lifestyle. Sport unites people of diverse culture, religion, race and beliefs; creating a sense of belonging and social integration. Although sports development is not the solution to all the problems of a society nor an alternative to life-subsistence needs of communities that are disadvantaged. Yet it can create positive effects and be used as a valuable tool for development.
