This, however, is based on the rumour that the governor and party leadership have endorsed a particular aspirant, although the assertion has been denied variously by the governor and the Ekiti APC. The right thing to do is to conduct elections to elect a new president and board members for the federation because our four-year tenure has elapsed. “But since they are still referring to Kida as the president of the NBBF, like in the letter we saw on the social media, I’m still on the board too and I’ll resume my job as players representative from today. “I’m very disappointed with the Ministry for referring to Musa Kida as president of the NBBF because they ought to understand as intelligent and educated people that the position of NBBF presidency is not by appointment and since the election has not been held, why recognize someone whose tenure has since elapsed as president. “Going backward after dissolving the board and caretaker committee to refer to the same person as president of NBBF when you are supposed to conduct another election is not the best way to go,” Ugboaja admonished Sports ministry officials. Famuyibo accused the APC leadership of not providing a level playing field for all aspirants, saying such necessitated the call by his admirers and supporters to pursue his aspiration on another platform. YOU MAY . The onus lies on him to tell the world the truth and what the true position is.
