Members undergoing aerobics
SPORTS MEN and women have been challenged to make training and discipline their guiding principle.
Alhaji Iddris Dick Holison, General Secretary to the Committee of Madina Chiefs, gave the admonition, when he inaugurated the Great Youth Keep Fit Club at a brief but impressive ceremony last Saturday, in Madina. Great Youth Keep Fit Club is one of the 17-member clubs that constitute the Union of Madina Keep Fit Clubs (UNIMAKC). Alhaji Holison expressed the need for members to be time conscious adding that “discipline is the hallmark of every association.”
The General Secretary also appealed to the clubs to respect time, as punctuality would, to a great extent enhance their development. President of UNIMAKC, A.D.O.1 Abubaka Siddik Ahmed advised the clubs to eschew gossip, backbiting and hard liquor, which he indicated would eventually destroy them. “The way you conduct yourselves as sportsmen and women, during and after your training sessions speaks much about you in your communities.” Various games, such as sack race, spoon and lime race, 100metres dash and boxing, formed part of activities that added colour to the inauguration.
