The election which took place last week in Cairo, Egypt also saw Mohammed Bashir, the CFN’s technical director being appointed as member of the Technical Committee of the Confederation of African Cycling for another  four years.

Bashir, who arrived the country Monday last week, expressed appreciation to the National Sports Commission,  NSC,  for its wonderful support for the Nigerian representative in the Cairo election.

”I sincerely thank Nigerians and the NSC for all the support and encouragement  we received for election,” he said, adding that the Board of the CFN will meet early next month to discuss  important issues to be presented to NSC.
