According to him, “Polo is a team event, and it helps the officers to imbibe discipline and endurance, it is one of the important games for the Armed Forces, so I want to use this opportunity to encourage all our Services to form a Polo Club”.
He commended the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) for pioneering the formation of Polo Club among other Services in the Ministry, stressing, “this is a matching order to all the Services that are here….. I want to assure you that in the next six months, all the Services will have a formidable polo team”.
