Solomon Dalong of Plateau State has been appointed the new Minister for Youth and Sports of the Federal republic of Nigeria on Wednesday following the inauguration of 36 ministers by President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday,

He’s a lawyer and former Prisons officer from Plateau state believed that he’s competent enough to handle the responsibility of controlling the affairs of sports in the country.

Early feelers say he has the ears of President Buhari and he will move swiftly to ensure accountability in Nigerian sports.

A new permanent secretary, Christian Ohaa, has already been appointed for the sports ministry.

It is not clear where new development in the ministry would leave former director-general of the National Sports Commission, Alhasssan Yakmut in the scheme of things.
