September,1 2021


A widely circulated video reportedly of a former Nigerian boxer Stephen Ogbo has come to the attention of the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development.

In that video, Mr Stephen Ogbo, who now appears to be visually impaired, displayed some pictures and medals he claimed to have won for Nigeria in his active days including a gold medal at the 1974 Commonwealth Games.

Touched by the plight of Mr Stephen Ogbo, the Youth and Sports Development Minister, Sunday Dare has asked for more facts about him so that his claims can be verified and the right kind of help and support can be given to him in line with the Welfare programme for former athletes put in place under his leadership since coming on board two years ago.
