According to the President we have decided to partnered the Nigeria Volleyball Federation (NVBF) and many other organizations to develop ISACA’s objective worldwide.
“This year we did the partnership with the volleyball federation and other organization that are here today, we did a survey on the game of Volleyball and we found out that this is the kind of game our members are interested in and as such look out for how we get our members play it at their various working places”.
