The Toyin Amuzu Foundation, a non-governmental and not - for - profit organisation, has concluded plans 
to hold a football tournament for youths in Abeokuta South Local Government Area(LGA) of Ogun state.

Chairman and Founder of the Foundation, Chief Toyin Amuzu, disclosed this to newsmen in Abeokuta.

Chief Amuzu said the maiden edition of the competition tagged,"Toyin Amuzu 2021 Football tournament" would bring out the best sporting talents in the youth and support their creative potentials for development.

He assured that various winners would go home smiling with trophies and cash prizes, explaining that 'the idea was to positively engage the youth, steer them away from social vices and channel their time towards sporting activities, since an idle hand, they say, is the devil's workshop'.
