Chief Sunday Dare, The Honourable Minister of Sports and Youth Development, gave a commendation in a statement in abuja on Monday following the Nigerian contingents who won nine gold, two bronze and four silver medals.

The women’s team led by Blessing Oborududu reclaimed the top spot on the continent that they lost to Tunisia at the previous edition held in Casablanca, Morocco. 



Dare, while commending the team, urged the Nigeria Wrestling Federation (NWF) led by former Olympic champion Daniel Igali to keep up the hard work and sustain the progressive momentum.

“The ministry is proud of what you have done and wants you to keep this progressive momentum going.

“Sustaining this momentum will ensure that wrestling can get Nigeria on the podium again at the 2024 Olympics in Paris as was the case at Tokyo 2020,” the Minister said.
