Speaking with the press after the launch, the Chairman of Dove football club, Prince Dapo Ajibade, remarked that the formation of the club is another way, religious bodies can use sports to positively engage the restive teeming youths and help them channel their unbridled energy and vibes for the betterment of the nation.
