NOC opts for virtual AGM on Dec 17

The Nigeria Olympic Committee (NOC) will hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM) December 17 via the online videoconferencing platform, Zoom.

The Secretary General of the NOC, Olabanji Oladapo, said the 2020 AGM will be via Zoom because of the prevailing conditions occasioned by Covid-19.

“Though it’s painful that we cannot come together as one big family this year, it’s good to adhere strictly to the laid down rules and regulations of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and stay alive hale and healthy,” Oladapo said.

The President of the NOC, Habu Gumel, has also expressed his happiness for the re-election of Babatunde Fatayi-Williams as Vice President, African Swimming Confederation (CANA).

Gumel congratulating Fatayi-Williams on his mandate said, “It’s a thing of joy to see my former 2nd Vice President being re-elected by the General Assembly of the African Swimming Confederation (CANA) to serve his second term. This simply means, one good term deserves another. This should be a clarion call to all stakeholders to seek office on the continental body and be relevant in the scheme of things thereby propelling our sports to the next level.
