In view of the problem affecting Nigeria Boxing. The Hon Minister of youth and Sports Mr Sunday Dare called me and we spoke for about 1 hour on phone.

My brothers and Sisters.The Minister explained to me the whole problem.

I was surprised that most of us did not know what was the cause.

The Minister told me that Money was approved for Boxers Olympics qualifiers series .

That Amateur Nigeria Boxing board prefered to used the money for Nigeria Boxing Board Officials for Cameroon trip denying the Boxers the opportunity to travel for Oympics qualifiers.

That Nigeria was.Charged I think he said 16 thousand Dollars as fine for not participating.

SOLUTION.

I Asked him to help Nigeria Boxing federation for White Card so that some of the boxers from Nigeria can participate for Japan Olympics.

CRISIS

The Minister told me that the challenge now is that there are three different groups fighting for control of the board.

That the deputy Sanate President of Nigeria will have meeting with them with a view of having one board.

Way forward.
There is money for Nigeria boxing board but it can only be released when there is peace.

The Minister told me that he ordered for lock up of boxing building at SURULERE LAGOS when there was a petition about business and mismanagement.

Later the minister had to reopen the place because every boxing business and gym should belong to Nigeria Boxing Federation management .

Minister also told me that he did not want to Interfere with federation case even some of the members are using International bodies to counter any good plans from the government.

The above is how far I have gone to make sure that Nigeria Boxing is revived so that boxers and coaches and official will laugh again.

News
I will be live on Channels TV by 9pm today through zoom to discuss problem of Nigeria Boxing.

We need peace and Unity
