The Toyin Amuzu Foundation is set to hold a football tournament for youths in the Abeokuta South area of Ogun State.

This is part of its efforts to enhance youth development in Ogun state.

Chairman and Founder of the Foundation, Chief Toyin Amuzu who disclosed this to newsmen in Abeokuta, said this first edition of the competition tagged, “Toyin Amuzu 2021 Football tournament” would bring out the best in the youths and support their development.
