Young football player Ayomide Ayanbunmi, alongside a young aspiring journalist, Hussain Dikko, have both departed the shores of the country for Moscow, Russia for this year’s Football for Friendship Programme put together by Gazprom in conjunction with world football governing body, FIFA.

The program aims at developing youth football by championing youth sport and a healthy lifestyle, promoting friendship between children from different countries, fostering social values such as respect for other cultures and nations, and commitment to principles of equality in the younger generation.

It is also comprised of several global events like the Annual International Children’s Football for Friendship Forum and International Day of Football Friendship, Football for Friendship World Championship, as well as numerous local sports and public events in participating countries.

Thousands of children meet at these events, communicate, share their experiences, make friends, learn to find common language and understand each other.

The Nigerian contingent are accompanied by manager of Football for Friendship Program in Nigeria, Shola Ogunnowo and Ayodele Ibidapo of the NFF Communications Department.

The event kicks off on the 8th June and will end on 16th June. (thenff.com)
