Oreweme stated this during the opening ceremony of Inter Primary School Table Tennis/Taekwondo Competitions.

At the two-day event, which was concluded last Friday, Oreweme said she was  impressed with the performance of the students that took part in the two games. She noted that Nigeria can excel in international meets if coaches discover young talents from schools.

“Our pupils have potential to be great if we discover them at  tender age. Some pupils who took part at the taekwondo and table-tennis performed well. What they need are coaches that will encourage them in their various schools,” he said.
