Until his latest appointment, Ambakederemo was a member of the Delta State Sports Commission. He was there for 4 years.
Reacting to the development, the new SA(Sports Development) said, “I see this appointment as an upliftment as I will be liaising between the Governor and the Delta State Sports Commission. I think it will bring about a better understanding between the DSC and the state government as that will be my preoccupation.”
