The president of the Nigeria Football Supporters and other Sport clubs Dr. Rafiu Ladipo has warned Comrade Joseph Evah to be very careful about hijackers who would emerge in the future to hijack the Skating Federation which he has put in so much to ensure its development over time.
Ladipo gave the advise recently in Lagos, during a reception organized for the athletes who represented Nigeria in the 1st ever African Skating Championship which took place in Lome, Capital City of Togo in December 2017.
Dr. Ladipo narrated the ordeal he went through in the hands of the current NFF board, who are calling on him (Ladipo) to hand over the management of the Supporters club to them (NFF), but that he has been firm and has blatantly refused to do so.
Ladipo further added “I told them to go and form their own supporters club, but this one is ours and not a property of the NFF. I have worked peacefully with several boards of the NFF in the past, and none has ever attempted to hijack it, but this is coming up this time but we are firm towards letting them know its not their property”
Ladipo further told Comrade Evah that “Now that you are struggling with the Skating Federation, financing and trying to make the Sport develop and gain recognition, they will not come to give you the support, but once the Sport has become known and popular in Nigeria, some individuals will show up to tell you they want to take over the federation.
He further prayed for the success of the Federation, encouraged Comrade Evah and pledged his support towards the growth and development of Skating in Nigeria.
