Nwoko, who spoke in Abuja while being honoured by the President of UK-based Jose Foundation, stated that the wide gap in sports development in Nigeria made him to setup the sports focused institution.

He made it known that the institution is modelled after sports focused Loughborough University in England and he also stated that five of the seven structures recommended by the NUC for a start are already in place.

The President of the foundation, Dr. Martins Abhulimhen, stated that the award was in recognition of the frantic efforts and sacrifices made by Nwoko to restore the glory of sports in Nigeria and Africa at large through the Star University he is putting up in Delta State.
