AFN President, Solomon Ogba explains his point to his coaches and athletes in Abuja/ Photo Credit: AthleticsAfrica.Com The Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) President, Solomon Ogba, has expressed satisfaction with the improvement in the conduct and outcome of the 4th CAA Abuja Grand Prix, which held at the Abuja National Stadium last weekend.
Ogba said that the Abuja Grand Prix had in no small way exposed the standar of Nigerian athletes, praising especially the Nigerian 4x400 relay team, which won the event and qualified for the IAAF World Athletics Championships with a 3:02.33 clocking.
He noted that since 1994, no Nigerian athlete had been able to make eight metres in long jump and promised that with what he saw at the meet, Nigerian athletes would exceed that mark at the Mobil Track and Field Championship this week.
"There has been a serious improvement in our 4x400m team. I am very happy they have made an Olympic mark today," Ogba said.

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 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.
