How I tackled Nigeria’s poor performance in sports – Dalung

By Luminous Jannamike
ABUJA – The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Solomon Dalung, has explained how he addressed the challenge of Nigerian’s poor performance in international sports tournaments.
Addressing delegates to the Nigerian Sports Summit 2017 on Tuesday in Abuja, the Minister said he identified the governance structure of many sports federations as the one of the major factors responsible for the country’s poor performance in international competitions.
“When I came in as Minister, one of the challenges we identified as responsible for the poor performance of Nigeria in sports competitions was the governance structure of our sports federations.
“Realising that, I decided to embark on reforms in our sports. These reforms took us to conducting fresh elections within the federations which brought up democratically elected leaders.
“Today there is no single week that a story in the ministry is not that of harvest of medals and trophies,” he said.
