Former Nigeria sports minister and former President, Nigeria Olympic Committee (NOC), Engr Sani Ndanusa, has been elected into the Sports Committee of the Commonwealth Games Federation.

Ndanusa, who is also the chairman of the Nigeria Tennis Federation (NTF) boss, defeated William Blick, the president of Ugandan Commonwealth Games Association by 8 to 4 votes at the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) Annual General Meeting held in Auckland, New Zealand.

Ndanusa described his victory as “extraordinary and unprecedented” as he was unavailable at the poll due to flight delay.

Ndanusa pointed out that the manner at which he was elected showed a strong goodwill among African Commonwealth Games association presidents.

He commended the National Sports Commission (NSC) under the leadership of Dr. Alhassan Yakmut for the resolve to develop Nigerian administrators in international sport politics which the country has been lacking.
