In statement signed by AFN Head of Communication & Media, Olukayode Thomas, Ogba commends Oshodi who became NTTF president about a year ago for leading Nigeria to her best performance in any World Table Tennis Championship.

The feat was achieved at the 2014 World Tournament in Tokyo, Japan with the quartet of Segun Toriola, Aruna Quadri, Ojo Onaolapo and Kazeem Makanjuola finishing seventh in Division two of the tournament.

The team overcame top teams like Belgium, Turkey and Canada on their way to the last eight of the division.
