2022 NOC Election: Name-Dropping Plot To Cow Delegates Bursted


The President of the Nigeria Olympic Committee NOC, Engr. Habu Gumel is engaging name- dropping tactics to cow the 38 eligible delegates in Thursday’s NOC election in Jallingo,Taraba.

This tactics according to one of the Federation President, is being executed by a certain Federation president who is a retired staff of the Youth and Sports Development Ministry.

The Federation President who spoke under the condition of anonymity said; “Engr Gumel’s last option is to use a former staff of the ministry, who is now a President in one of the Federations to reach out and tell delegates that Engr. Gumel is the Sports Minister’s candidate. We had several meetings in Asaba after one of the top sports administrator in Delta state took some of us on a binge, as this plan was the last option on the table.”

When asked if the Sports Minister
Mr. Sunday Dare has endorsed Engr. Gumel, the source said,”the Sports Minister has been neutral and apolitical, as the efforts made by Engr. Gumel to meet the minister on this election has been abortive. The top Delta State Sports Administrator is the one sponsoring the return of Engr. Gumel, and he has mandated the retired Sports Ministry staff to “deliver Engr. Gumel at all cost.” From our investigation, Majority of the Federation Presidents have frowned at this new development and vowed to resist every attempt to force Engr. Gumel on them.
