Uzoma Onwuchekwa, the newly elected President of the Nigeria Taekwondo Black Belt College (NTBBC), has reiterated the need for all stakeholders to embrace peace and harmony for unity to reign in the college.
He made the statement during the 30th anniversary of the college in Nigeria and the inauguration of the new executive members.
Onwuchekwa, who took over from George Ashiru, said that besides unity, leadership, ethics and certification were also identified as issues to be tackled for the college to move forward.
“The past President, George Ashiru, has said it all that unity is one of the key issues that we have to address if the college must move forward. This means carrying everybody along and avoiding those things that will bring problems and doing the right thing.
“It is only when there is unity that the leader can function effectively by ensuring members are complying with the rules of the game; hence there is need to also look at leadership, ethics and certification,” Onwuchekwa said.
Ara Ajayi, the newly elected Treasurer, said that the new board would embark on talent hunt to raise future stars in the game for Nigeria.
“We will carry out the talent hunt through schools because that is where we can get the actual age that are trainable,” she said.
Other members inaugurated into the NTBBC board include Kenny Salawu, Vice President South West; Tony Ekaidem, South South; Muhammed Usman, North East; Ibrahim Yahuza, North West; Chinedum Rockson, South East; Abdulmumin Yusuf, North Central and Yemi Adeyemi, General Secretary.
Others are Tunji Akinwande, Financial Secretary; Wofai Ewa, Public Relation Officer, while TKD Grand Masters Council are Dominic Bassey; Koffi Anani, Kunle Labinjo, Charles Owah, George Akinola and George Ashiru.
