The seventh President of the Nigeria’s Taekwondo Federation (NTF), George Ashiru has said that he will lead the federation to bring glory to the country.

Speaking on Channels Television programme, Sports Tonight, Mr Ashiru said the federation is focus at winning gold in the next Olympics.

Mr Ashiru said that the federation will pioneer a compulsory license scheme that will guarantee the life of every athlete practicing taekwondo in Nigeria.

“The athlete, coach, and referee licensing scheme is international best practice which the World Taekwondo Federation introduced globally a few years ago. At the national level, we have added the compulsory insurance due to the imperativeness of protection against injuries and related medical emergencies in the course of partaking in national events.” Mr Ashiru said.
