According to a report by NAN, the new President of the federation following his victory called on all relevant stakeholders and sponsors to contribute to the development of sports in the country.
In his speech, Chukwudi noted that he will work assiduously to woo sponsors that will help grow the sport, adding that the welfare of the players is his greatest concern.
He said, “look for sponsors that will be of assistance and support us in our various activities to ensure that we grow. The welfare of players will be our major concern because without them [players] there are no people to lead.”
