The Paralympic Committee of Nigeria (PCN) has felicitated Senator John Owan Eno on his appointment and swearing in as the Minister of Sports Development.
Enoh was sworn in alongside other Ministers on Monday by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
PCN was quoted in a release signed by Niyi Alebiosu, the Public Relations Officer on behalf of the President of the Committee, Sunday Odebode and his board, saying that the appointment of Enoh would turn around the situation in the Sports sector.
It added that having Senator Enoh, a seasoned legislator of the Lower and Upper Chambers of the Federal Republic, as the new Minister of Sports Development comes with a lot of experience and exposure to take Nigeria Sports to its desired height.
“Senator John Enoh who is taking over from Chief Sunday Dare as Minister of Sports Development is an astute politician and an entrepreneurial per excellence. He will impart a great way on Sports development in Nigeria. On behalf of myself and board, we welcome the Honourable Sports Minister to the office and promise to work with him peacefully to promote and win more laurels for our great nation.”
“The sports sector is a critical component of human and capital development. With the pedigree of the newly sworn in minister, better days are ahead for the Country,” the statement said.
