Former Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Solomon Dalung, has urged the new sports minister, Sunday Dare, not to allow the cabal in the sports sector to intimidate him.
According to the ex-minister, he fought “untouchable” cabal during his tenure and succeeded.
Dalung boasted that his tenure liberated the sports ministry, adding that the new sports minister would have a smooth administration.
“When I came in as a new minster, I said I am an undertaker and that I will step on toes and I did exactly that because I don’t want the next minister to be intimidated by cabals,” Dalung told BSNSports.
The ex-minister specifically warned Dare against the “cabal” in the Nigeria Football Federation and National Sports Commission.
“I sacrificed myself so that nobody can intimidate the next minister because I have dealt with the untouchables. Before I came as Minister of Sports, no one dared the Nigeria Football Federation and the National Sports Commission the way I did and I left unhurt. But I did it and ran my full tenure. Nobody could remove or intimidate me.
“I liberated the ministry of sports, therefore, no one can dare Dare among the cabals because I have rendered them powerless,” Dalung added.
