Before Daniel Amokachi was appointed Special Adviser on Sports to President Muhammadu Buhari, he was first made Football Ambassador.
But Nigerians are frowning at the former Super Eagles captain and coach for being redundant since his appointment as SA on Sports. Many wonder why Amokachi's impact has not been felt since his appointment.
Latest reports in the media suggest that immediate past captain of the Super Eagles, John Mikel Obi has also been appointed Youth Ambassador.
While, this writer congratulates "The Catalyst" on his appointment, I wish to advice that Mikel should get his briefing right. He should ask the Hon. Sports Minister, Sunday Dare, what is expected of him....or what his obligations are.
I learnt the Minister told the media present at the event that "Mikel will be a role model to the youth in mentorship." But what the Minister didn't tell the media and or Mikel is how this mentorship role would be played or carried out.
Nigerians won't want to see a man or Mikel with portfolio but without duties....better still the Minister should just tell Nigerians that it is just a honorary appointment and nothing is expected of Mikel
Once again, congratulations Mikel.
