The scribe of the Nigeria Olympic Committee Olabanji Oladapo has stated that the unfortunate demise of the President of the Nigeria Weightlifting Federation Mohammed Yahaya is a big loss to the Federation.
Oladapo speaking in a chat with brila.net described him as the Golden President which was the last nickname Yahaya was called after a highly successful campaign for the Weightlifting contingent at the 2019 All Africa games in Morocco stressing that he will be one greatly missed and a bit difficult to replace.
“We refer to him as the Golden President based on the performance of his athletes at the last All Africa games in Morocco. It’s a total loss, we just pray that God will be with his family.
“It is so shocking and we’ve not even been able to get over the shock alone because of the way he was very closed to everybody. He was the guy behind the success of his Federation.”
