The President of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria, Solomon Ogba is like my godfather, a big brother and I am very close to him. I don't mince words when I tell him that he is not doing the right things. In private, the President and I have greater misunderstanding that what the press publishes. I respect him a lot but sometimes I feel that the track on which he is going goes way beyond what he is supposed to be doing. At a time, I told him please sir, slow down. He might not like the way I told but after two days, he would call me to ask how to do it. I like to work with him because he appreciates that I speak my mind. He does not like praise singers and that is why I can work with him.

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.

Solomon Ogba, Delta State commissioner for youths and sports was one of the critics.He accused the Edo Sports council of winning the sports competition "at all cost," thereby turning the festival into an avenue to score political points."He alleged that his state, Delta was short-changed by Edo State to rubbish his state's track record.He vowed to "avenge" the injustice in Abuja 2004 edition of the tournament.
Solomon Ogba, Delta State commissioner for sports said his state performed better because Abuja was a neutral ground which gave all participants a level playing ground to compete."What happened in Abuja 2004 will set a ground for future events where the host state will allow free flow competition.That is the beauty of the competition where everybody knows that to win any medal means that the person should be allowed to compete in a very conducive atmosphere," he said.
