Sunday Dare, Minister of Youth and Sports Development, promised to recover all the missing memories that allegedly disappeared from the Hall of Fame that was created for Nigerian sports icons.
Speaking during a visit to the center of the Hall of Fame, located inside the main bowl of the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abuja, Dare said: “We are determined to create a Hall of Fame suitable for our sporting men and women. I decided to visit the gallery to see things for myself, to see what happened to the items collected to set up the Hall of Fame, seventeen years ago. I want to discover the
lost link. I am working with the Ministry staff to establish what happened to these items. We will find where they were kept, retrieve them, clean them and place them in the gallery where people can see them.

“These items are priceless and we will do everything to get them back. We are talking about memories that were assembled and kept in a private building 17 years ago, when there was no Ministry of sport and the sport was directed by the National Sports Commission. We want to do what is right now, so that the Hall of Fame can keep these priceless memories. "
The Sports Minister stated: “There is nothing like shame. If one or two components are missing, it will not be a shame. We are trying to correct many things that went wrong about 17 years ago. We are determined to correct the mistakes of the past by creating an appropriate Hall of Fame. "
