You failed us, Oshonaike blasts sports ministry

Funke Oshonaike
TOP Seeded Hamburg based Female Table Tennis Player Funke Oshonaike has lamented the inability of the Ministry of Youth and Sports to adequate-ly fund the Table Tennis Federation, so that top seeded players can continue to contribute to the growth of the sport.

Skyping in from Hamburg on Channels Television Sports program-me, Oshonaike regretted her inability to attend the ongoing Sudan meet, which she claims would have improved her skills and world rankings, but could not as a result of lack of fund, as personal funds spent on the last tournament she attended has not yet been refunded.

She said even Haruna Qadri, Africa’s No 1 seeded Table Tennis player is going through similar travails. Funke started her playing career in Lagos on a street called Akeju street, Shomolu, Lagos, in the early ’80s while very young.

She was a spectacle each time she played because she was very small and used to amaze people with her skill at that early age.
