Commonwealth Wrestling Champion, Adekuoroye Blasts Akeredolu, Dumps Ondo for MFM
Nigerian female wrestling sensation, Odunayo Adekuroye, has revealed that she has dumped Ondo State and has opted to represent Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, MFM at the forthcoming 3rd Governor Dickson Wrestling Championships in Yenegoa, Bayelsa State.
The world number four wrestler, who disclosed this to DAILY POST on Saturday, emphasized that her decision to quit Ondo State was borne out of her desire to give back to those who have given her the necessary support to excel as a wrestler.
According to the two-time Commonwealth Games Champion, Adekuoroye berated the Ondo State Governor, Olawarotimi Akeredolu for allegedly turning a blind eye to the plight of athletes and wrestlers in the state, particularly as it concerns training, equipment and incentives.
The Ondo-born Adekuoroye, who is also a four-time African Champion, accused the state government under the leadership of Gov. Akeredolu of not being supportive to her career and other wrestlers in the state, who she said against all odds are still doing the state proud in competitions without commensurate correspondence from the state government.
Her words, “Today, where I am, it is by the help of God, my coach, Purity Akuh, the President of the Nigeria Wrestling Federation, Honourable Daniel Igali, and the General Overseer of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, Dr. Daniel Olukoya.
“All the international competitions that I have been attending, it is the MFM General Overseer that has been helping me. Even the recent competition I went for, the German Grand Prix and Bulgarian Open, he paid for it.
“So, there is nothing Ondo State has offered me that will make me stay with them.
“I have made up my mind not to represent Ondo State at the 3rd Governor Dickson Wrestling Championships next month.”
