Polo: My Presidency depends on delegates – Ogboro
By; JACOB ONJEWU DICKSON, Kaduna.
The decision to contest for another term as the President of the Nigeria Polo Federation when the present term expires next year lies solely with the delegates, Francis Ogboro, President of the Federation has said.
Responding from questions from newsmen at the Kaduna International
Polo Tournament which ended on Saturday in Kaduna, he said the
decision was not his to make. “The election will be coming up next year. If they feel they want me to continue, I will be willing to. We will just wait till that time comes and accept everything as it happens,” he said.
Commenting on the development of the game of Polo, he said that the
Federation has been promoting a youth development programme for years and it has been ensuring the entrant of new players into the game
annually.
When asked if he has a team that he is currently sponsoring, he
explained that he currently sponsors several teams that participate
using several names, but disclosed that soon, a team to be known as
Ogboro will emerge to compete for the highest trophies.
On the just concluded Kaduna Tournament, he described it as fantastic.
“It was electric and very interesting. All the teams that participated
have really improved their games,” he said.
