Solomon Dalung, Minister of Youth and Sports Development

One Nigeria Youths, an NGO, has applauded the Minister of Youths and Sports,  Barrister Solomon Dalung over his efforts in rebuilding sports in Nigeria.

The group, which is also the organiser of One Nigeria Festival, said that Dalung’s efforts on sports reforms were yielding good results for Super Eagles and the nation’s football.

The group’s coordinator, Magnus Oku, in a statement on Monday in Abuja, said that Dalung’ s leadership style was practical.

“In recent past, we have struggled with the crisis in the sports sector but Dalung’s leadership style has put that to a halt.

“We also commend him for resolving the crisis between the Super Eagles supporters’ factions which has helped them to unite as one family to cheer the Super Eagles to victory in Russia.

“Such is a hallmark of good leadership.

“We pray also for a favourable result for Nigeria on June 26 as they meet Argentina,’’ Oku said.
