“I am so overwhelmed with joy. I will never forget your kind gesture sir. Thanks for what you have done for me. I almost gave up; I was so scared because they told me I could lose all my teeth if the surgery was not done on time. I went through a lot of pains in the Olympic qualifiers.

I was scared I may not even qualify. Thanks be to God Almighty I did not only qualified, but the surgery was successful. May God meet you at the point of your needs   for what you are doing for Nigerian sports”.

The minister had said the welfare of athletes whether active or retired remains the focal point of the ministry’s policy.
