I didn’t lobby for it – Tinubu’s new Minister, John Enoh

The newly-inaugurated Minister of Sports, John Owan Enoh has insisted he did not lobby President Bola Tinubu for the role.

Enoh was reacting to criticisms over his inexperience in the industry.

Despite lacking a background in sports, Tinubu assigned him to become the 36th Minister of Sports.

Enoh, who has been into farming before transitioning, however insists he is getting up to speed.

The 57-year-old, speaking to Daily Trust shortly after taking office, said: “I didn’t lobby to be sports minister.

“President Bola Tinubu saw me fit and decided to put the task of building sports in Nigeria.

“Since I was assigned this portfolio, I have been reading about sports.”
