Minister Hialed Over Omorodion’s Appointment

The umbrella body of Edo Sports Journalists in the country, under the aegis of Edo Sports Media Practitioners, have been reviewing its recent activities, with the leadership of the body saying that Nigerian sports may after all be on the right path under new Sports Minister Tamuno Danagogo.
A statement issued Friday by the body’s Chairman Osaretin Emuzie and Secretary Smarts Ebhodaghe, said it was particularly thrilled with the appointment of one of its members, Patrick Omorodion of the Vanguard Newspapers as the new Special Adviser to the Sports Minister.
“Omorodion has been a shinning light in sports journalism in Nigeria and it took a discerning Minister to pick him out of the glut of sports journalists in the country. Minister, we can assure you as a body that the Omorodion we know will not fail you and the nation. Most importantly, you have a man who will tell you the true state of affairs in Nigerian sports only for the betterment of the system”, the statement declared.
The ESMP, also took time off to praise Edo state Governor Adams Oshiomhole, over his fresh strides in sports through the 10km Okpekpe race.
The initiator of the race, Mr Mike Itemuagbor also received plaudits for his heroics, with the body hoping that the international athletics body, IAAF, will quickly grant the race the much desired gold status.
