With some giant strides made since taking charge, President of Nigeria Table Tennis Federation (NTTF), Wahid Oshodi, has said that the federation would not be carried away by the little success recorded in this dispensation.
Oshodi, who is a member of the Nomination Committee of International Table Tennis Federation (NTTF), said there are still more ground to possess in the sport, as the feat achieved by Aruna Quadri, as well as the bronze medal won at the last Commonwealth Games in Scotland, would not make the NTTF to be complacent.
“Definitely we are not satisfied with what we have achieved and this is where a lot of people get it wrong. We are still living on past glory because our current generation of players has not done much. “Aruna Quadri’s achievement last year and our team medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games are now history.
We need to move on from that as our next major test as a nation is at the Africa Games in Congo Brazzaville. “We need to fight hard for the seven gold medals at stake.
If we can take all seven gold as we used to do many years past, that might satisfy my hunger for success for a short period,” Oshodi said. The NTTF boss described fund as a major hiccup faced by the federation, saying most of their programmes have been hampered by paucity of fund.
