The immediate past president of the Nigeria Tennis Federation Sani Ndanusa has urged tennis stakeholders to support the newly-elected NTF board headed by Dayo Akindoju.
The former sports minister commended Yemi Owoseni, who contested against Akindoju, as well as other tennis stakeholders, for displaying maturity in Tuesday’s election in Abuja.
He said, “We are one big family as far as tennis is concerned and this was clearly demonstrated in the peaceful manner in which the election was conducted.
“With this type of spirit, we are confident that significant growth will be achieved in the next few years.”
The former Nigeria Olympic Committee president added, “Akindoju carries a lot of expectations because he has been making giant strides in the last few years that he came into tennis administration.
“His passion and commitment to the sport will be a significant factor in elevating the game to a very high standard and we are confident of him to deliver.”
