How did you meet Aruna Quadri?
I met Aruna at the Abeokuta 2006 National Sports Festival. I was Chairman of Lagos State Table Tennis Association then. It was a festival which allowed professional athletes compete and in the table tennis event, the legend himself, Segun Toriola, was captaining a star filled Ogun State team, including Bode Kayode, Lanre Aremu and Kazeem Makanjuola, who had been members of the Lagos team, but decamped to the host state, Ogun. Having lost many players, we took a young team made up of secondary school students from Lagos to gain experience. But the cynosure of all eyes was the very young mostly unknown boys’ team from Oyo State. They had a fantastic Coach and played with such skill and determination but lost the men’s finals narrowly with Toriola’s experience coming to the fore. Aruna Quadri was one of the young boys and I introduced myself to them and started inviting them to Lagos to play in tournaments and train with our Coaches.
