Ex International Boxer Mazi Comr Ikechukwu Okoronkwo has called on the Federal Government to demonstrate the sincere positive change being preached by APC Government in Youth and Sports Development.
Speaking to the newsmen in his residence in Enugu today, Mazi Okoronkwo expresses pains and disappointment he said “It is now clear that Nigeria have failed again to participate in another International sports event that is programmed to build the capacity of the boxers throughout the world”
The above failures he said, have pushed the national boxers to the extreme which according to him may be dangerous for the nation.
Mazi Okoronkwo continued lamenting, “Nigeria boxers were not seen at Toyko Olympics due to Government inadequate action and now again Nigeria is not participating in World Boxing Championship at Belgrade due to same Government inadequate action”
In view of these happenings, Mazi Comr Ikechukwu Okoronkwo hereby calls on both Federal Ministry of youth and Sports Development Abuja and National Assembly to create sincere Financial independent to Nigeria Boxing Federation (NBF) so that NBF will know who to hold accountable or responsible for any short comings.
“Today no Nigerian is in the list and the big question is why? He questioned.
