President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with new World Boxing Federation, WBF, International Super Featherweight Champion, Ridwan Oyekola, “The Scorpion’’.

In a congratulatory message issued by his spokesman, Mr Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Tuesday, the president joined all Nigerians to celebrate the historical feat after 57 years.

He affirmed that Mr Oyekola’s victory over an Argentine fighter, Lucas Montessino, brought more glory to the country, in a sport ”where another Nigerian, Anthony Joshua consistently blazes the trail”.

He, therefore, enjoined youths to diligently follow their passion to the point of global recognition and celebration.
