President of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria recognized by World Athletics body Engr. Ibrahim Gusau has expressed delight after been reelected as President of the AFN for another term of four years Monday afternoon in Kebbi state on a day another election was held in Abuja with Tonobok Okowa emerging President of the AFN recognized by Nigeria’s Ministry of Youths and Sports.
Gusau speaking in a chat with brila.net after his reelection said the last four years have been a turbulence-filled period and stressed that all these should be set aside to try to focus on the development of Athletics in Nigeria to include the athletes and the sports itself.
He also dismissed the emergence of another President in the Abuja AFN election conducted by the Ministry of Youths and Sports officials while adding that his board is ready to go the length to challenge the illegality of the Ministry’s anointed AFN.
“I feel glad and I’m happy for the stakeholders entrusting this on me to build on the foundation we have put in place. The last four years have been turbulence four years and I think that should be set aside for the progress of athletes and Athletics that is the athletes and our sports. The issue of second Congress cannot hold water, there is a court judgment and High Court and Appeal court that clearly says the Ministry should stay away. So these things are very clear but I think they want to go the longer route but I think we are capable enough to go.”
