PMB felicitates with Ridwan Oyekola

President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with the new World Boxing Federation (WBF) International Super Featherweight Champion, Ridwan Oyekola, “The Scorpion’’, joining Nigerians to celebrate the historical feat after 57 years.

In a statement signed by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity Mr. Femi Adeshina, the President affirms that Oyekola’s victory over Argentine fighter, Lucas Montessino, brought more glory to the country, in a sport where another Nigerian, Anthony Joshua consistently blazes the trail.

“President Buhari believes the new Super Featherweight Champion realised his dream after many years of focus and discipline, urging more commitment to sustain his place in history, after the Late Dick Tiger”, the statement says.

President Buhari also enjoined all youths to diligently follow their passion to the point of global recognition and celebration.
