It has been gathered that the Nigerian Wrestling Board of Control (NWB of C), in conjunction with Office of the Special Adviser to the President on Ethics and Values, has concluded arrangements to host the maiden edition of a world professional wrestling championship in Nigeria.
According to claims by the Vanguard, Philoseth Sports Promotion has been named as the official promoter for the event scheduled to hold in February, 2013 in three different states. It is expected that professional wrestlers from across the world, including the USA, Austria, Germany, South Africa and Nigeria, would be brought in to ensure the success of the project.
Secretary-General of NWB of C, Ralph Nwafor, in a statement made available to Vanguard, pointed out that the programme was in recognition of good governance in Nigeria, adding that it was aimed at promoting professional wrestling in Nigeria. He also said the event was to encourage the host state governments to support the growth of the game by establishing a functional arena for the sport in such state.
So much for good governance! Why do we even need to fight to recognize the good governance if it is there in the first place? How about we do something to tackle the corruption which stares us right in the face every day!
