By Our Correspondent
Former president of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria, Solomon Ogba has resigned from membership of the federation’s boars citing constitutional disregard and interference in the activities of the AFN, Bestchoicesports.com.ng can report.
In a release Monday signed by the media adviser to the sports administrator-tirned evangelist, Olukayode Thomas it states that the chairman Delta State Athletics Association chose to throw in the towel due to the undue interference in the activities of the AFN.
According to Mr Olukayode, “Ogba is not comfortable with the dirty politicking that has taken over the AFN lately and that has informed his decision to quit the board.”
He said Mr Ogba who is an advocate of good governance is not happy “that the AFN constitution and rules have been relegated to the background while things are now done without recourse to the law binding the Federation.
“As an elder statesman in sports and athletics, in particular, Ogba said he cannot sit and continue to watch things done wrongly, though he has withdrawn from the AFN board, he will continue giving his support to athletics in Delta State and Nigeria as a whole” Thomas assured.
