Adelusi wants to­tal over­haul of sports fed­er­a­tions

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

A for­mer Pres­i­dent of the Nige­ria Wushu Kungfu Fed­er­a­tion (NWKF), Ojo Adelusi, yesterday called for to­tal over­haul of sports fed­er­a­tions af­ter the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

Adelusi said in an in­ter­view in La­gos that it was nec­es­sary to con­duct elec­tions into the bod­ies to make them rel­e­vant.

“There is there­fore the need to over­haul the fed­er­a­tion be­cause many of them are non-func­tional.

“Over­haul­ing would be a ma­jor step that could de­velop the var­i­ous sport fed­er­a­tions and bring them at par with their coun­ter­parts world­wide.

“There is the need to en­sure that only of­fi­cials with pas­sion and de­ter­mi­na­tion to de­velop their fed­er­a­tion were elected to oc­cupy po­si­tions,” the for­mer pres­i­dent said.

He said proac­tive and com­mit­ted board mem­bers should be elected to bring about sig­nif­i­cant changes to the bod­ies.

Adelusi noted that there was dearth of ac­tiv­i­ties in most of the sports fed­er­a­tions which had af­fected their de­vel­op­ment, stressing that such fed­er­a­tions need pas­sion­ate ad­min­is­tra­tors to gen­er­ate de­sired re­sult. (NAN)
