NFF President Dalung Calls For Transparency Ahead Of Sports Federation Elections - 4 years ago
Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung, has urged electoral committee members to be unbiased, ahead of the National Sports Federations election. He gave the charge while inaugurating the 93-man committee at the National Stadium in Abuja on Monday. “It is the credibility of the process that will vindicate our stand to democratise the Sports Federations,” Dalung said. “If a process is fair, transparent and credible, both winners and losers will have a sense of victory. “So, I charge you all to ensure that we achieve our collective objectives of delivering a fair, transparent and credible election. It is important and critical that we get this election right. It is the foundation of the change we are trying to establish. “The outcome will either justify or vilify our intentions. Apart from the transition from the old tradition where 13 persons were appointed into the boards, the expansion of the electoral college from 13 to 54 presents its unique challenges. Elections into the 31 National Sports Federations is scheduled for Tuesday.
