President of the AFN, Chief Solomon Ogba nurtured to stardom as the track & field events of the 18th National Sports Festival in Lagos begin on Tuesday next week. President of the AFN, Chief Solomon Ogba, said Thursday that those saddled with the responsibilities of the talent hunt have been briefed on what to look out for. "We want to use the festival to see what the states are offering in terms of fresh talents. Those with prospects will be identified and a programme put in place to let them achieve their potentials," stressed the AFN chief. Ogba reminded states that AFN's zero tolerance for performance enhancing substances was still in place. "We are urging states to bring athletes that are dope free to the track & field arena. We are going to carry out dope tests on all winners and anyone caught will not only forfeit the medal but face other sanctions like being banned," stressed the AFN president. He expressed his happiness with the organisation put in place by Lagos State and hoped that the athletic events will live up to expectations of attracting more fans to the stands."Track & field is all about crowd. Athletes love to see fans cheering them. I just hope more fans turn up to watch the athletes from the states perform on the track and in the field events" stressed Ogba

"She took medication for her toothache and we strongly suspect that it was that, which led to her failed drug test," said AFN president, Solomon Ogba.
He said that Nigeria would make a strong case for the athlete, with a view of keeping the 100m gold she won, after Australia's Sally Pearson was disqualified for false starting. Osayomi ran the women 200m semi_final yesterday, but she failed to qualify for the final.
She is the first athlete to be ensnared by the dope tests, which organisers have strictly adhered to in the course of the Games.

At the risk of being accused of hitting below the belt, I especially will love to see the wonders the new AFN chairman, Solomon Ogba, will perform in athletics.
Even then, I am sceptical about Ogba. As a sports commissioner in Delta State, he was one of those who encouraged and sustained the idea of luring athletes away from their states, just to win-at-all-costs during the National Sports Festival. I am not sure he has the patience of a vulture; the patience to discover and nurture while waiting for the right time to strike. Anyway, he will soon find out that international sport and glory is a matter of investing in young talents. I don't know how much Usain Bolt can be offered to change his nationality from Jamaica to Nigeria.

It was against this background that Chief Solomon Ogba, the representative of Delta State on the board of the NDDC, recently led a team of other officials of the interventionist agency and journalists into the belly of the tiger so to speak.
Ogba inspected the 1.8-kilometre shore protection project in Okerenkoko, which had reached an advanced stage. He said there was need to increase the tempo of work at the shore-lines. Thus, he directed the contractor to see him within 24 hours to straighten out some issues concerning the job.
The envisaged delay notwithstanding, Ogba assured the people of Omadino and Okerenkoko as well as other coastal communities that the NDDC would not relent in its efforts to provide development infrastructure for them. He said: "We can assure you that the NDDC is determined to make a difference in the lives of the people. We will continue to build new roads and bridges as well as complete on-going reclamation and shore protection projects. Chief Ogba inspected other projects in Kurutie and Ugborodo communities.
Chief Ogba also commissioned some of the detached two bedroom bungalows built by Chevron Nigeria Limited (CNL) for the Itsekiri Regional Development Committee (IRDC). His choice for the assignment was informed by the fact that NDDC was part of the committee that packaged the 100 housing units spread across 23 Itsekiri communities.
The NDDC representative said he was impressed by the standard of the houses, considering that they were cited in the rural area.
