Bukhari congratulates the new boxing champion Ridwan “Scorpion”.
President Muhammadu Bukhari congratulated the new World Boxing Federation (WBF) World Featherweight Champion Ridwan Oyekol, “Scorpion”.
In a congratulatory message from his representative, Mr. Femi Adesina, on Tuesday in Abuja, the President joined all Nigerians to celebrate a historic feat 57 years later.
He argued that Oekola’s victory over Argentine wrestler Lucas Montessino brought the country more glory in the sport, “where another Nigerian, Anthony Joshua, is constantly in the lead.”
Therefore, he urged young people to unswervingly pursue their passion in order to achieve worldwide recognition and celebration.
Bukhari believed that the new featherweight champion made his dream come true after years of focus and discipline, calling for more efforts to keep his place in history after the late Dick Tiger.
He also praised the local organizing committee for the WBF title match that took place in Nigeria.
