I’ll sanitise Sports Ministry –Dalung


The Minister of Youth and Sports, Solom Dalung, has said that his main focus for now is to sanitize the sports’ governing house.
Dalung, who spoke with reporters in Katsina at the weekend, said he will sani­tize and introduce transpar­ency in the Ministry.
“My mission in the Min­istry of Youth and Sports is one to sanitize the Minis­try because it is a common knowledge that corruption stinks from the inside, es­pecially Sports Ministry and other aspects of our youth development program,” said Dalong.
He noted that investors would be gingered to do more if the nation’s sports handlers are transparent in the management of invest­ments.
“Sports as an industry cannot be managed alone by government; govern­ment today is a major stake­holder in terms of provision of sports facilities, and maintenance of those facili­ties.
“We will open our doors to foreign investments so that corporate bodies can participate, and then we limit our activities to the maintenance of our facilities and encourage the recruitment of talents through grassroots sports,” Dalong said.
On the high expectation of Nigerians, the Minister warned that they should not lose touch of the fact the President from inception had alerted the nation on the situation on ground.
“It is very easy to de­stroy but of course, it takes tolerance and patience to rebuild, and because we are determined to rebuild, Nigerians will still have exercise patience and toler­ance as we take major steps to lay a solid foundation for nation building but we will indeed not betray the aspi­rations,” he assured.
