The newly sworn in Chairmen of the 30 Sports Federations have denied any link to the group threatening to disrupt  public peace over the constitution of the new Boards of Sports Federations.

Speaking on Wednesday,  President  of the Badminton  Federation  of Nigeria Barrister, Francis Orbih, said…“My attention  has been drawn  to a fake statement  claiming  that members of the newly  inaugurated  Boards were unhappy  about the dissolution  of the board. Someone reportedly signed  on behalf  of my Federation. This is totally  false, I  believe impostors are at work. We were all at the swearing  in ceremony  by the Minister,  so how can we we part of something if we dont believe in it? The public should disregard  this false statement,  we want to focus on our Olympics  preparations  and win laurels  for our country. We appreciate what the Minister  is doing  and would give him total support to ensure we do well in Tokyo.”
Speaking  in the same vein , Chairman  of the Nigerian Golf  Federation Prince Olagunsoye  Oyinlola said…”We all aligned  with  the Minister as we need to focus on how Nigeria  can do well at the Olympics.”
Chairman  of the Wresling Federation  Dr Daniel Igali affirmed this…”We need to stay focused  as the Olympics  draws nearer. We can’t  afford to get distracted, we are determined,  we are forging ahead. The Minister is giving us all the support  we need to justify all his efforts by winning medals at the Olympics.”
