Buhari Might Cancel Nigeria’s Sport Ministry #sport


According to source close to the President-elect, the incoming government is not keen on appointing a sports minister, preferring instead to allow the Director General of National Sports Commission (NSC) to relate directly with the presidency. The president sacked Hon. Gbenga Elegbeleye, the sports minister, appointed Alhassan Yakmut, a director in the NSC, as the acting director general to replace Elegbeleye

The source said: “When you appoint somebody who knows next to nothing, what you get is the kind of crisis playing out now. Their interest has nothing to do with developing the sector”.

“Now we don’t know if the National Sports Festival will hold at all. We competed at the Commonwealth Games without official kits. It was that bad.”

He added that they have advised the incoming government to let the NSC be as doing so would help the Commission focus on sports development instead of using limited funds to cater for needs of ministers.
