“Nigeria is on a super drive to success as part of the president’s transformation agenda. With patience, [we] will reap the dividends of this administration.

“Sports provide the enabling environment for Nigerians to really demonstrate unity in diversity. It is the strength of Nigeria,” Mr. Ekeji said.
