“We are one big family, as far as tennis is concerned and this was clearly demonstrated in the mature and peaceful manner in which the election into the board and that of the president and vice-president were conducted. With this type of spirit, we are confident that significant growth will be achieved in the next few years.”
The former Nigeria Olympic Committee (NOC) boss described his tenure at the helm of the NTF as “successful and eventful, with the solid foundation laid in infrastructural provision, general development and cordial relationship with international and continental bodies.”
