Onyeama said his board’s commitment toward popularising the sport among Nigerians had never been in doubt, noting that it had been the their plan to ensure sustainable development of the game across the country.
He expressed satisfaction with the successes that the NCF had recorded in the last four years in terms of creating awareness and taking cricket to the grassroots.
