Minister Praised For Omorodion’s Appointment

Two time governor of Edo State and a onetime Chairman of the National Sports Commission, NSC, Brig. Gen. S.O. Ogbemudia, Rtd., has commended the appointment of Mr. Patrick Omorodion, as the Special Assistant (Media) to the Honourable Minister of Sports and Chairman of the National Sports Commission.
The commendation is contained in a congratulatory letter dated 20 May, 2014 addressed to Mr. Omorodion and signed by Dr. Ogbemudia.
Dr. Ogbemudia stated that his appointment as the Special Assistant on Media was coming at a time when there is the need to formulate “a national sports policy that will clearly draw the line on whether our sports should be for recreation only or for national mobilization, economic growth and international diplomacy”.
He therefore urged the Special Assistant to use his appointment to advocate his lofty ideas to his principals that would ensure the formulation and implementation of people-oriented policies that would change the fortunes of sports in Nigeria.
The letter further noted that Mr. Omorodion’s antecedent in sports journalism has demonstrated an intense concern for sports development in Nigeria, a situation he described as very “patriotic”.
