Orok Duke The Last Man Standing In National Sport Administration, As Cross River State Candidates About To Loss Out In 22 Of 32 Sports At Elections
Cross river state had never had it this low in sports administration and placement. This is a state where almost all the sports started. From football to cricket,handball, weightlifting and what have you. This informs why they state has produced erudite sport administrators like Etubom Oyo Orok Oyo, Chief Efiom Okon, ikpeme’s of this world , Ntiero Effiom etc.
Sport has taken a nose dived ever since Emmanuel Elom was made Chairman of sports commission. The state is no where to be found in any sport.
Even the table tennis that was our last strength and pride. The training complex was sealed some weeks to major tournaments Elom claimed that the instruction was from above.
However, the table tennis fraternity has been blessed with a six board complex from the enclosed three and with Olympic standard facilities.
How can one explain that Cross riverians contested to heard different zonal and national body of sports and we lost in all the 22 different sports.
The last man standing Chief Orok Duke who is running as the south South chairman of Table Tennis Federation had been endorsed by five out of six state. Information reaching us had it that it is even his state that wants him down. They have been busy calling other state delegates not to vote Orok Duke and even if Orok Otu Duke wins he will be the only Cross riverian administering any of the 32 sports.
Elom ,director of sports and co has gone horse trading, vowing that they have instruction and duty that Orok DUKE should also lose. See below other state standing in elections held 2 days ago. Orok Duke elections is coming up on the 30th of September, 2021.
