On the wake of the dissolution of sports federations by the sports ministry in preparation for new elections, followers and stakeholders of Karate in Nigeria have began a clamour for the return of Chief Donatus Agu Ejidike, as the federation president.
According to Daniel Nnamdi, a staunch enthusiast of the game, the Sports Minister has done well with the dissolution and call for new elections into all the sports federations. He further opined that it would usher fresher breaths into Nigerian sports.
He however warned that the minister and his team should be wary of moves by politicians and their ilks who have nothing good to offer sports in the country.
" I have been following sports, particularly, Karate in the country for several years now. And l can boldly attest to the fact that its rise on the global stage is due to the diligence and selfless efforts of Chief Ejidike, " he remarked.
" I want to implore the minister to remain resolute in his avowed stance to move our sports to the next level. Today, Karate has attained Olympic status and credit must go to Chief Ejidike, who also singlehandedly facilitated the collaboration with the Japan in this regard, " Nnamdi added.
