Former D’Tigers captain Oyedeji re-elected chairman of Nigeria Athletes Commission

Former D’Tigers captain Olumide Oyedeji on Tuesday in Abuja retained his position as chairman of the Nigeria Athletes Commission (NAC) with 29 votes out of the 30 votes cast.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the election was conducted under the guidance of the Nigeria Olympic Committee (NOC).

NOC president Habu Gumel was represented by a member of the committee, Ademola Are, who is the President of the Nigeria Rugby Football Federation (NRFF).

NAN reports that in the membership election, Henry Okorie had 20 votes, while Aimiaemmonsa Amin had only one vote, Joseph Udale had 18 votes and Emmanuel Jatto 20 votes.

Jatto and Okorie were therefore elected to be members of NAC in the male category.

Blessing Onyeali had 16 votes, Seun Faleye had 15 votes, with Onyeali declared the member to represent female athletes.

Speaking with reporters later, Oyedeji promised that he would properly represent athletes’ interests.
