*New generation scribes appointed with immediate effect

*Ministry Of Youth and Sports announces new Federations secretaries

Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Solomon Dalung, has approved a reshuffle of Secretaries of Sports Federations in a gambit that pundits claim looks like a shift away from the ‘business as usual’ with a new generation of scribes, mostly who have not been recycled.

Under the new dispensation, all the six geo-political zones are represented to achieve efficiency, professionalism and national spread for equality and sustainability.

Under the new postings, some of the scribes considered as recycled includes Segun Oguntade, Olumide Bamiduro, Gloria Ekwempu, Ademu Elijah, Beyioku Niyi, Abobi Patrick and Olalekan Alabi who were redeployed to the Federation and  Elite Athletes Department (FEAD) while Patrick Okeke, Clement Iyaluegbehe, Ajao Olufemi, Ganiyu-Opolo Abidemi and Dapo Akinyele were posted to Grassroots Sports Development.

Chinedu Ezealah, Thecla Opara and Iwang Isreal will now move to Sports Planning, Research and Documentation while Uche Onwumeh and Mbora Ikana are deployed to the Lagos Liason office and Onyeka Emeka Augustine, Birma Buba Ademu and Ogenyi Queen move to Human Resource Management.

In the re-deployment, a new set of ministry staffers were assigned to the federations which hitherto were managed by those posted to the ministry departments, while the others were moved to other federations.

Here is the full list of the Federations and their secretaries.
