IN NIGERIA SYSTEM WE ARE NOT USED TO REMEMBERING GOOD WORK ONLY THE BAD

SORRY I DID NOT KNOW THE GOOD THINGS DONE BY MINIMAL. HOWEVER GOD BLESS HIM FOR THOSE GOOD WORK

But he has to wake up and stand firm for boxing because when his house is not in order ,it is the man of the house that people blame. eg. GCFR Buhari. Because NBF problem is exactly like Nigeria problem.

The minister told me that NBF is divided into 3 groups but In my investigation I find out,that there are even four groups fighting for the control of the game namely Minimal,Ayeni,Oldschool and omogege but it is our boxers, coaches and R&J that is suffering as the result of the fight

Now it is the duty of those interested group to use the case of inefficient and embezzlement of fund to fight their opponent to victory for the benefit of justice and accountability.
