Nigeria Govt. must ensure Oduduru does not represent USA – AFN

Technical Director of the Athletes Federation of Nigeria Sunday Adeleye has urged the leadership of the Federation and the Nigeria Government to ensure Sprint star Divine Oduduru remains a Nigerian Athlete.

In a chat with, Adeleye called on the Nigerian Government to do the needful in ensuring Divine Oduduru does not nationalize in the USA to compete for them.


The AFN director acknowledged that a whole lot has been put in place for Oduduru to enhance his performance on the track by his managers in the United States.


“His records does not just come like that, funds have been spent,

    Why should he? Nigeria does not incentivise its althele. We lack the financial resources, the infrastructure, the leadership or understanding. It will be foolhardy for him to think for a minute to run for Nigeria when the US offers him unparalleled growth and development .
