CHRISTMAS is a time for hope, and New Year is a season for renewed inspiration through God’s universal message of peace on earth and goodwill toward humanity.

To the Executive Board, NPC Leaderships, and our revered Athletes across Africa, I send my warmest wishes for the blessings of the Season.

I am grateful to all of you for contributing to developing our sports and further promoting the Paralympic Movement on the continent.

Significantly, 2023 has been an excellent year for the progress of our sports through your commitment and dedication. Indeed, you have worked so hard, and we have made tremendous progress with remarkable milestones to celebrate.

Our collective efforts and joint positive energies enable us to deliver such flagship projects for the benefit of our athletes, including the AfPC / IPC Regional Sports Training (RST) event in June and the first-ever African Para Games, Accra 2023, in September, all in Ghana.

With the same demonstrable commitment, determination, and collaborative spirit, we also brought on board the First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, HE Senator Remi Tinubu, as the Grand Patron of our Movement; all these initiatives have further propelled our organization to the next level.

Yes, we couldn’t include Para-Athletics and Para-powerlifting due to challenges beyond the control of the AfPC Board and members, but let me assure you, the future is bright.

As the AfPC board and secretariat prepare to organize logistics for the first-ever Extra-Ordinary Meeting from 19-21 April 2024 in our African region, we encourage you to submit proposals to build a more vital regional organization.

Indeed, things are getting better and shall get better as we continue to learn every day.

PARIS 2024

The AfPC “Target the Podium initiative” will begin with support to provide return flight tickets to twenty elite athletes drafted from Para-powerlifting and Para-Athletics to participate in Paris 2024 Qualification Events in Tunis 2024 Grand Prix – Tunis International Meeting 5-7 March 2024, Marrakech 2024 Grand Prix – International Para Athletics Meeting 26-28 April 2024, Sharm El Sheik 2024 Para Powerlifting World Cup 21-24 March in Egypt. Target The Podium is the real deal to boost our preparation for Paris 2024.

I sincerely hope that in 2024, with your non-stop support and that of all our key stakeholders and partners, the progress will continue relentlessly on the same positive track.

I wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR.

Samson Deen, AfPC President and AfPC Executive Board and AfPC Team
