The Athletics Federation of Nigeria, (AFN) has congratulated Dr. Ken Anugweje, a member of the board of the federation on his promotion to professor of sports science by the University of Port Harcourt.

A message signed by Solomon Ogba, the President of the AFN, described Dr. Anugweje’s promotion as reward for hard work, dedication and diligence.

“Dr. Anugweje is highly dedicated to sports science and sports medicine, so his promotion to the zenith of his calling, being promoted to the position of professor, is the reward for his dedication and commitment to sports science’’.

Anugweje, who is the head of the AFN medical committee, is the immediate past president of NUGA.

An ace footballer in his hey days, Ogba urged aspiring athletes and current athletes to borrow a leaf from Anugweje and invest their time in a career while they are still young,

‘’ Sports has no second hand value. By the time you are in your thirties or at the very best, early 40s, your body will stop obeying your brain, as it will not be able to cope with the thoroughness involved in such physical exercise.

“That is why I am advising young athletes to take their education seriously or learn a trade that will sustain them when they are no longer active on the track. Anugweje has gone ahead to excel in another field outside football. If he had not taken his education seriously then, only God know where he will be now, I urge our young athletes to emulate him’’ concluded Ogba.
