Suffice it to say here that here is a man who combine three combat sports in his sporting life and excel in all of them a feat not equal by his peers in his active sports days.
He also has a gym to himself as well as the public, where sports men and women practice their sporting skill.
To a large extent as a technocrat he was the man who agitated for oil derivation in 1981 and established a case thirty years ago. In combination of sport and public life he advised the Rivers State government to treat sports people with silver spoon, as far as sports is concern he is an authority.
Sir may you live long enough to enjoy the fruits of your labour here on earth. ###
