By Desmond Ekwueme
He is fearless and very daring. He is highly reverred by sports administrators. He rocks the boat when and where necessary.
He is pragmatic. He doesn’t hesitate to drive in the sucker punch when and if you stand on his way.
He is the trainers trainer. He is the coaches coach. He is the managers manager. He is the athletes Pathfinder.
He is raw. He is open-minded. He is direct. He is straightforward. He is sincere. He is predictable.
He is highly tactical. He is very technical. He is tough. He is clinical. He is result-oriented. He is a talent hunter.
He discovered many champions, nurtured and managed them to the height of heights. He is the master of the National Sports Festival. He is a major factor for Nigeria in the All Africa Games. He is a game changer for the country in the Commonwealth Games and a notable voice when it comes to the Olympics.
He is a winner. He is a champion. He is a conqueror. He is a Victor.
He is full of jokes. He is very lively. He is down to earth…but he is equally damn serious. You don’t mess around or mess up with him especially on the job.
He is Brown Ebewele. He came, he saw and he conquered.
Rest in peace Juju Man.
