NOC hails Tandoh’s appointment as Lagos sports boss


The Nigeria Olympic Committee (NOC) has described the appointment of Dr. Kweku Tandoh as the Executive Chairman of Lagos State Sports Commission as a right step that will add values to the development of sports in the state.

NOC Secretary General, Mr. Tunde Popoola reminded Tandoh, who led the management team of the Sports Commission on a courtesy visit to the committee at the National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos on Thursday, that his experience was something the NOC, as the number one sports agency in Nigeria, was even tapping into.

“We have the belief that Lagos sports is in the hands of a trusted and tested administrator, who has done so much for sports in Nigeria. Lagos has what it takes to be the leader in Nigerian sports and with the new board I know the bar will be raised to the next level.

“Dr. Tandoh’s visit to the NOC is a milestone to boost and foster cordial relationship with the NOC and we are ready to partner Lagos in any area that will enhance development of sports in the state,” Popoola said.

The NOC scribe urged the Lagos Sports Commission to send its staff to some of the capacity building courses, which the NOC is organising in conjunction with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) this year.

In his response, Dr. Tandoh said the Lagos Sports Commission was grateful for the support from the NOC over the years, adding that the new management desired more of the support.
