Former director of Grassroots, Ministry of Youth and Sports Development Dr. Ademola Are, says that Nigeria need to succeed in Tokyo .
Speaking to journalist at the inauguration of the newly elected AFN board, As a stakeholders in Nigeria sports and observer, the observation that i am bringing to the attention of all stakeholders and interested person in Nigeria as regards sports is that, the Sports Ministry have been able to conclude in conjunction with NOC the election into the board of the Athlectics Federation of Nigeria (AFN).
It will be recalled that, 34 States were in attendance for the election and that is the authentic board recognised by the Federal Government.
Moreover, it has come to my notice that the Former Caretaker President Olamide George was saying certain things about the guidelines.
“Olamide is not an Authority and he cannot dictate to the Federal government or Ministry of Sports on the guidelines of AFN and he was part of it and he was a beneficiary of what he is talking about now.
