A Vice President of National Olympic Committed, Alhaji Ibrahim Galadima has accused the Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung of ruining the Nigeria’s sports industry.
He described Dalung as a cog in the wheel of sports progress.
Alhaji Galadima told newsmen in Kano on Wednesday that he was shocked over the confusion and intrigues that reportedly greeted the federations’ election in Abuja last Tuesday, stressing that the Minister had succeeded in supervising the destruction of sports in the country.
“The whole drama of intrigues and manipulation of the election process will create confusion in sports. Dalung has run sports down and there is no likelihood that it will improve under his tenure,” the Chairman of the Kano State Sports Council said.
The former Kano Pillars Chairman took a swipe on the minister for appointing him to head a committee for the reform of football in the country but failing to receive the report over a year after the committee completed its work.
“He appointed the committee and gave us two weeks to submit our report. We finished the work since April last year but he has refused to receive the report despite reminders to him. He has shown he is not serious about any reforms.
“Sports in Nigeria has been going down since he came and something urgent must be done to salvage the situation,” Alhaji Galadima said.
