A Presidential candidate for the Nigeria Cricket Federation, Emeka Onyeama, has appealed to all stakeholders vying for elective positions ahead of the June 13th Zonal, Vice Presidential and Presidential elections to shun destructive politicking, saying “it is a dry wind that does no one any good.”
Onyeama who expressed shock at the campaign of calumny against him over his ambition to seek for re-election, wondered why elections into the cricket federation had become a do-or-die affair.
Stating why he is canvassing for a 2nd term in office, Onyeama said with the successes recorded by the federation, there was a need to consolidate on what is already on ground.
“We have managed to reinstate cricket in the National School Sports curriculum which has seen students participating in the last three editions of the event.
“We also got cricket back into NUGA which is another platform we are holding strongly after we rejuvenated it and it is now waxing stronger.”
