BFN President, Francis Orbih, who gave commendation during a courtesy call to the Corp Marshall of FRSC, also expressed appreciation for the synergy between the FRSC and BFN.

While FRSC has over the years recruited players like Ibrahim Adamu, Gideon Babalola and Isaac Ogbole, it recently gave employment Anu Opeyori and Deborah Ukeh, who are both men and women national number one and two ranking players respectively, as well as Aminat Ilori.

“We’re indeed very grateful for what FRSC has done for badminton over the years.

Orbih however hinted that Nigeria would be playing host to other African countries at the All African Senior badminton Championship in Nigeria next month. The event which will be happening in Nigeria for the first time in19 years will be staged in the city of Port Harcourt starting from April the 22 to 28.

The championship which is badminton’s flagship event in Africa has been given a status of an Olympic qualifier.

The Corps Commander, Manpower Development, Charles Aborchi, who received the BFN boss and his board members on behalf of the Corps Marshal, thanked the BFN president and promised that FRSC will continue to feature in every sporting event in its bid to contribute to the growth of sports in the country.
