President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the reconstitution of the membership of the governing body of the National Anti-Doping Committee (NADC), to drive its administration for the next four years.
This is following the expiration of the four year tenure of the outgone members since January 2022 and with a view to ensuring that Nigeria’s sports remain drug free and Nigeria maintains a clean international record in the war against drug abuse.
The reconstitution of the new Body has become necessary in order to strengthen the anti-doping structure in the country, consequent upon the recent anti-doping crisis that brought out fragile national anti-doping administration to undesired limelight.
The members of the Anti- Doping Body approved by Mr. President are as follows: Prof. Kenneth Anugweje, Dr Femi Ayorinde, Barrister Emmanuel Omuku, Dr Godfrey Odigie, Alhaji Mainasara Ilo, Dr. Akinlotan Olusegun, Omolewa Aduke, Representative of NAFDAC and. Ms Fadeke – CEO, Anti-Doping Unit/Secretary
