The new Chairman of the Commission have to continue to maintain the foundation already laid by previous administration.”

The President of Africa Region ll, AthIetics said, his appointment in the sports sector in Delta State has afforded him the opportunity to acquire deep knowledge both in Delta, Nigeria, Africa and World Sports in general and experience can’t be bought from the market.

He insisted that his services for Delta was an honour and privilege as he expressed gratitude to Deltans for all the accomplishments.
