There is need for educational institutions in the country to blend their academics with non-curricula activities in order to turn out youths that are fully equipped with the modern day challenges.
Its Group Managing Director, Alfred Okoigun, says this has become necessary to allow youths in such institutions to develop other latent talents aside academics that may prove crucial to their wellbeing and general growth of the country.
He spoke during the official presentation of a bronze medal won at the last Olympic Games in Austria by Miss Joy Udo-Gabriel, at the corporate headquarters of ARCO in Lagos. He promised to sponsor more youths in the country to realise their dream.
Joy, a student was sponsored to the Commonwealth Games by ARCO under the company’s student athlete scholarship scheme, in conjunction with Making of Champions (MoC), a group dedicated to discovering sports talents in the country.
