    Events that shaped Nigerian sports in 2022

    No doubt, the year 2022 will remain unforgettable for many sports-loving Nigerians for different reasons.

    In this report, GOWON AKPODONOR looks at how the country fared in some of its sporting commitments.

    AthleticsAthletics in Nigeria recorded its peak in 2022.

    From the country's participation in the World Championships in Oregon, USA, to the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England, it was an unforgettable year for the country.

    First on the list of athletes making Nigeria the topic of conversation were Tobiloba Amusan and Ese Brume.

    Amusan, who was named Africa's 2022 Best Female Athlete of the Year by the Confederation of African Athletics (CAA) last week, surpassed her contemporaries this year.

    Just as Nigeria's hopes for a medal were fading at the World Championships in Oregon, Amusan produced one of the biggest upsets of the championship, accelerating in a world record 12.

    12 seconds in the semifinals of the 100m hurdles, followed by a wind assisted 12.

    06 seconds in the final to win gold.

    A few weeks later, Amusan won gold for the Nigerian team at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England, where she too set a record.

    She went one step further by winning the Diamond League trophy for the second consecutive season, making her one of the best in the world and Africa's undisputed number one in athletics in 2022.

    Amusan, a former footballer from Ogun State, She will be proud of her unprecedented feat in 2022 despite missing out on the World Female Athlete of the Year award, which was won by American Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone.

    Amusan started 2022 with a successful African Championship title defense of hers in Mauritius in early June. Thereafter, she was in Paris, where she improved her African record of 12.

    42 seconds by running 12.

    41 seconds at the Diamond League meeting in Paris.

    In Benin City, Edo State, at the 2022 Nigerian Championships, Amusan effortlessly obliterated the record of 12.

    63 seconds set in 1997 by Angela Ateda by winning another national title for herself, having run an impressive 12, 58 seconds.

    Long jumper Ese Brume has also brought Nigerian athletics to a new level in 2022.

    Delta State native Brume once again proved why she remains the most consistent medal-winning Nigerian athlete in recent years.

    Ella Brume was the only Nigerian medalist at the World Indoor Championships in Belgrade, where she jumped the Season Best (SB) 6.

    85m to win the silver medal.

    In doing this, she became Nigeria's first world indoor medalist in 14 years since Olusoji Fasuba last won the 60m title in 2008.

    At the World Outdoor Championships in Oregon, USA, she in the final.

    In the process, Brume made history as the first African (male or female) to win two long jump medals at the World Championships, in addition to her 2019 Doha bronze medal.

    She is also the second Nigerian and African woman after Blessing Okagbare on winning long jump podium finish at the World Championships.

    Brume capped off his outstanding season at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England, when his sixth jump (7.

    00m) broke the previous Games (GR) record of 6.

    99m and, in the process, regained his title.

    the Commonwealth 2014.

    This year, Brume became the first African woman to jump four legal marks over 7.

    00m.

    She reached 7m twice, jumping 7.

    02m to finish second in Oregon and her victorious GR mark in Birmingham.

    Football WHILE athletics brought joy to Nigerians in 2022, this was not the case for football as it looked like a case of one step forward and two steps back.

    From the worst outing for the Super Eagles at AFCON 2022 in Cameroon, where they crashed in the round of 16, the failure to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar, as well as lackluster outings at regional soccer tournaments, Nigerian football was nothing to write home about.

    about this year.

    Qatar's failure to qualify for the 2022 World Cup was a major talking point about how the nation's football deteriorated in 2022.

    After qualifying for the last three editions of the FIFA World Cup in 2010, 2014 and 2018 Many soccer-loving Nigerians were optimistic that the Super Eagles would add the party to Qatar, which hosted the first World Cup in the Middle East. Their level of optimism followed the Super Eagles' promising start to Pool C in the second round of the qualifier, where Nigeria were drawn alongside Cape Verde, Liberia and the Central African Republic (CAR).

    With only the first place team in each group (out of 10) eligible to qualify for the final qualifying round, the Super Eagles finished on top of the group with 13 points having won 4, drawn 1 and lost 1.

    It was then that the team was managed by the German tactician, Gernot Rohr. Augustine Eguavoen took over as manager of the Super Eagles, following protests from some Nigerians that Rohr's team did not entertain enough.

    The 10 group winners were paired up to battle for Africa's five places allotted to the World Cup, and the Super Eagles faced familiar foes, the Black Stars of Ghana in the final qualifying round.

    After a 0-0 draw in the first leg in Cape Coast, Ghana, Eguavoen and 'the gang' played out a 1-1 draw in Abuja, thus missing out on the World Cup ticket on the away goal rule.

    , having failed to score at Cape Costa.

    The worst round of 16 start in history in Cameroon The last edition of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) held between January 9 and February 6, 2022 in Cameroon.

    Coach Gernot Rohr qualified the Super Eagles for the tournament by winning four games and drawing two in their group that included Sierra Leone, the Republic of Benin and Lesotho.

    The 'People's Candidate', Eguavoen, led the Super Eagles to AFCON Cameroon and was placed in Group D along with Egypt, Sudan and Guinea Bissau.

    of optimism from Nigerians back home.

    While some were quick to hope for another AFCON victory since manager Stephen Keshi and his gang conquered the continent at South Africa 2013, others simply labeled the team a champion in waiting.

    But Tunisia's Carthage Eagles 'cut' Nigeria's ticket in the round of 16 after beating the Super Eagles 1-0, an outing described as the nation's worst performance in AFCON.

    The Super Falcons' sad departure from AWCON BEFORE the Super Falcons' trip to Morocco for the CAF Women's Cup of Nations (AWCON) 2022 between July 2-23, Nigeria was the most successful nation in Africa.

    But the nation's history and reputation in women's football was ruined in Morocco.

    The Super Falcons not only crashed out in the semi-final after losing to hosts Morocco 5-4 on penalties, they also lost their third-place match 1-0 to Zambia to settle for fourth place.

    The Super Falcons were the best in women's football in Africa with local coaches, but 'corruption' caused the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) to hire foreign coaches for the team.

    And under former NFF president Pinnick Amaju, the once-famous Super Falcons fell out of favor in Morocco, the worst in Nigerian history.

    The Super Falcons booked the ticket to Morocco 2022 as African champions and having won 11 of the 14 editions of AWCON.

    Signs that all was not well with the Super Falcons appeared when the team finished second in a group that included South Africa, Botswana and Burundi.

    Despite the Super Falcons' poorer record in Morocco, the NFF still has faith in American official coach Randy Waldrum ahead of the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup which will be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.

    And barring a miracle, Coach Waldrum will be showing off the same old legs next year.

    High-flying flamingos in India MAYBE the only good thing to come out of football in 2022 was the exploits of the Nigerian women's under-17 team, the Flamingos, who won a 'golden bronze' for Nigeria in India.

    Their older sisters, the Super Falcons, had fumbled in Morocco.

    Before their departure for the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup in India, not much was known about the team led by coach Fatai Olowookere.

    But the girls gave a good account of themselves.

    At India 2022, the Flamingos were drawn into Group B along with Germany, Chile and New Zealand.

    The Nigerians grabbed six points to finish second in the group.

    A quarterfinal clash against the USA gave some Nigerians a nightmare, but a determined Flamingos dispatched the Americans 3-4 on penalties to advance to the semifinal, where they ultimately lost to Colombia 5-6 on penalties .

    In the third place game against Germany, the Flamingos trailed 3-0 but fought back to level.

    They claimed the 'golden bronze' by beating the Europeans, Germany, 3-2 on penalties.

    The Flamingos' third-place finish in India was the first time they had progressed past the quarter-final stage at the FIFA U-17 World Cup. Best National Sports Festival ever ONE of the highlights for young Nigerians in 2022 was the celebration of the 21st National Sports Festival in Delta State.

    For most of the athletes, their coaches, sports administrators and journalists, Delta 2022 was the best National Sports Festival in history since it began in 1973.

    Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, in his determination to host a beautiful Games, launched quality infrastructure including a new tartan rink at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, two new indoor sports halls, a new swimming pool, a new hockey field in Okpanam and a new accommodation hostel in Issele-Uku. The Games saw the breaking of several national records and the setting of new ones in athletics.

    Some African champions were also dethroned in scrabble, among other events.

    A look at 2023With the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 now concluded, the attention of many football lovers around the world has turned to 2023.

    It will be a busy year for football around the world and in Nigeria.

    The luck of the draw has placed the Super Falcons in Group B alongside co-hosts Australia, the Republic of Ireland and Canada at the 2023 Women's World Cup. Additionally, in 2023 the FIFA age-matched competition for men will resume with the Under-17 and Under-20 World Cups scheduled to be held in Peru and Indonesia, respectively.

    African leaders call for faster industrialization during African Union Summit

    African leaders reviewed the continent’s progress in industrialization, economic diversification, and the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) in the context of global shocks, debt vulnerabilities, climate change, and security concerns.

    Twenty heads of state and government as well as their representatives attended the African Union Extraordinary Summit on Industrialization, Economic Diversification, and the AfCFTA in Niamey.

    "Not so long ago, the juxtaposition of the words industrialization and Africa might have seemed incongruous.

    Today, the question it raises is mainly one of ways and means,” said Nigerien President Mohamed Bazoum, the summit’s host. 

    “This in itself is proof that we are on the right track.

    A Nigerien proverb says, " You cannot stop a river,” he added.

    Bazoum called on African countries to entrench the rule of law to catalyze the emergence of the African private sector, unleash the energies of African entrepreneurs, and simplify the business environment.

    "Inclusive, coherent, and sequenced industrialization that we want cannot be imposed and can only be achieved by creating synergies between the private and public sectors to empower small and medium sized enterprises and create quality jobs.

    .” Bazoum added: “the youthfulness of the population and its growth, which are a challenge, can constitute an asset, provided the demographic transition is well-managed.” His Nigerian counterpart, President Muhammadu Buhari.

    echoed the sentiment.

     He said, “The African continent is blessed with a large youth population that can meet our labor shortages.

    Therefore, we need to tap into this abundant human resource by providing our youth with quality education that is relevant to their goals and meets the requirements of the labor market.” For President Paul Kagame of Rwanda, the way forward on industrialization entails investment in energy and infrastructure.

    "The pace of industrialization in Africa is still too slow to achieve Africa's development goals under Agenda 2063,” said Kagame.

    “We need to invest more of our national budgets in industrial policy, and significantly increase energy and infrastructure capacity."

    In a speech read on his behalf, African Development Bank President Akinwumi Adesina noted that free trade areas had brought prosperity worldwide not by trading low-value products, but by industrial production.

    “It is, therefore, clear that Africa's prosperity must no longer depend on exports of raw materials but on value-added finished products,” he said.

     Marie-Laure Akin-Olugbade,  African Development Bank acting vice president for Regional Development, Integration and Service Delivery, represented Dr. Adesina and delivered the speech on his behalf.

    “Across Africa, we need to turn cocoa beans into chocolate, cotton into textiles and garments, coffee beans into brewed coffee,” Adesina said.

    He said the Bank was investing $25 billion to transform the continent's agricultural sector and unlock the agribusiness market, which is expected to reach $1 trillion in value by 2030.

    The Bank chief also detailed efforts to develop spheres that will boost Africa's industrialization and economic diversification, including the energy, health, natural resources, and pharmaceutical sectors.

    “Africa has an abundance of natural resources, oil, gas, minerals and metals, as well as a vast blue economy that needs to be rapidly industrialized,” Adesina said. 

    "The future of electric cars in the world depends on Africa, given its vast deposits of rare mineral resources, including lithium-ion, cobalt, nickel and copper.

    The size of the electric vehicle market has been estimated at $7 trillion by 2030 and $46 trillion by 2050.

    Building precursor facilities for lithium-ion batteries in Africa will cost three times less than in other parts of the world,” he said.

    During the summit, the African Development Bank, the African Union, and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization launched (https://bit.ly/3Ul8mBC) the inaugural Africa Industrial Index. 

    The joint report showed that 37 out of 52 African countries have industrialized over the past 11 years.

    The study provides a country-level assessment of the progress made by the 52 African countries based on 19 key indicators.

    The 19 indicators in the index cover manufacturing performance, capital, labor, business environment, infrastructure, and macroeconomic stability.

    The index also ranks the level of industrialization of African countries along various dimensions such as capital, labor endowments, , institutions, infrastructure, and macroeconomic stability, amongst others.

    South Africa has maintained a very high ranking throughout the 2010-2021 period, followed closely by Morocco, which is in second place in 2022.

    Egypt, Tunisia, Mauritius and Eswatini complete the top six over the period.

    The report will help African governments to identify benchmark countries to better assess their own industrial performance and adopt best practices more effectively.

    During the summit, heads of state also reviewed the pace of operationalization of the African Continental Free Trade Area, which came into force in January 2021 as well as its linkages to industrialization.

    ‘Data is like learning a language – use it or lose it,’ Afrobarometer Chief Executive Officer (CEO) tells next generation of African researchers

    Thirty African researchers graduated from the Afrobarometer/University of Pretoria summer school Friday with a word of encouragement to use their new skills to contribute to Africa’s development.

    “Data is like learning a language – use it or lose it,” Afrobarometer CEO Joseph Asunka told the group.

    Afrobarometer conducted the free, three-week training program in collaboration with the University of Pretoria’s Faculty of Humanities and Future Africa, a pan-African research institute pioneering approaches to research and innovation on the continent and beyond.

    Intended to equip African scholars with solid skills in data collection and analysis, the curriculum focused on research design, survey methodology, analysis and use of social statistics in one of three areas – democracy and public opinion, elections and electoral systems, and corruption and taxpayer compliance.

    This English-language session was preceded by a French-language summer school at Université Cheikh Anta Diop in Dakar, Senegal, in August.

    Initially designed for Afrobarometer staff and network partners, the summer schools now welcome other participants as part of a broader effort to strengthen research capacity on the continent.

    “We believe that this will enable African researchers, policy actors, and civil society advocates to play more effective roles in African policy and development decision making,” Asunka said.

    Prof Innocent Pikirayi, Deputy-Dean in the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Pretoria said: “As a Faculty we are delighted to be able co-host this event.

    We are particularly proud of the work all the participants produced.

    We look forward to growing this partnership in the years to come.” The 30 participants – 60% women and 56% youth under the age of 35 – represented 15 African countries – Algeria, Angola, Botswana, Eswatini, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tunisia, and Zimbabwe.

    “The summer school has been an amazing experience,” said Simangele Moyo-Nyede, principal researcher for Mass Public Opinion Institute (MPOI) of Zimbabwe.

    “The knowledge I have acquired is enormous and so incredibly relevant to the work that I do.

    The tutorials came in handy in helping us apply the statistical methods learnt.

    I gained new insights and fresh perspectives on democracy in the elective course.”
