3 min read

President Bola Tinubu has congratulated Nigeria’s table tennis pacesetter, Aruna Quadri, on winning the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) Africa Cup title.

Quadri achieved a resounding victory in the final match of the 2024 ITTF Africa Cup in Rwanda, reclaiming his title and sealing his place as Africa’s table tennis champion.

President Tinubu commends the table tennis superstar for his dogged pursuit of excellence even in the face of gnawing obstacles, declaring that the zeal for distinction, the hardiness to succeed, and the inventiveness to solve complex problems are the exceptional qualities that define Nigerians.

The President also noted the recent progress in the nation’s sports sector, with remarkable performances in the African Games, the Africa Cup of Nations, and the World Relay Championships, and emphasised that his administration would continue to foster the growth and development of sports in the country.

The President reassured Nigerians that his administration remained dedicated to expanding the space of opportunities across diverse fields for Nigeria’s creative youths.

Six years after losing his crown, Nigerian table tennis legend Quadri on Tuesday reclaimed the ITTF Africa Cup title by winning the 2024 edition at BK Arena in Kigali, Rwanda.

He emerged as champion in a ruthless fashion, registering a commanding win in the final against Egypt’s Mohamed El-Beiali.

Aruna justified his top seed rating as he stormed to a 4-0 (11-5, 11-6, 12-10, 11-3) win to emerge as the new Africa Cup champion after losing the title to Egypt’s Omar Assar in 2018.

Fresh from his exploits at the WTT Saudi Smash, Aruna was simply unstoppable right from his first game before effortlessly taking down his Egyptian opponent in the final.
