The deployment of Senator John Enoh to the Ministry of Sports Development by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR, has been hailed by Engr.Ibrahim Shehu Gusau, insisting that the sector is poised for a “Renewed Transformation,” following the appointment of the Cross River born politician to oversee the sports sector.
Engr.Gusau in a thank you message to Mr.President on Friday, the Renowned Athletics Administrator said, “After a careful study of Senator Enoh’s blueprint agenda for sports development vis-a- vis your “Renewed Hope Agenda’ I am well assured that my trepidation for the sector has disappeared.
“Mr.President, the sports sector has suffered from paucity of funds and total neglect by governments at all levels, leading to inhibiting growth currently being witnessed in the sector.
“The lack of legal frame work for sports development is another factor inhibiting growth of the sector; this can be tackled through a collaboration between the executive and the legislature in setting up a proper legal framework for sports.
“Once again, accept my congratulations for appointing a distinguished man who wears different caps to reposition sports, and I pray Almighty Allah to guide and direct him right.”Engr.Gusau’s statement reads.
