The federal government has dissolved the board of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria. 

 

According to a statement signed by the media aide to the Minister of Sports and Youth Development, John Joshua- Akanji, titled “Dissolution of Athletics Board”, the board was dissolved because its tenure had expired.

 

The statement explained, “Pursuant to article 10.4 of the 2017 constitution of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria, the ministry hereby dissolve the board of the AFN.”

 

The ministry said the AFN would be holding an elective congress on Monday.

 

“We have advised that the elections should be organised in accordance with the 2017 constitution of the AFN as contained in the agreement reached at the reconciliation meeting held in Abuja last April and brokered by the Confederation of African Athletics and World Athletics,” the ministry added.

 

The ministry urged delegates at Monday’s congress to eschew bitterness and vote for candidates that can unite the federation.
