The Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) said tomorrow’s All-Comers competition will go ahead as scheduled.
Secretary General of the federation Niyi Beyioku confirmed all arrangements have been concluded for a hitch free event and advised athletes to attend as the federation officially begins its preparations for summer’s Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.
“The AFN under the leadership of Olamide George is the one recognised by the constitution of the federation and athletes, state associations and clubs are advised to take note,” Beyioku added in a press statement.
“The AFN is governed by its constitution and World Athletics has always acknowledged that member federations must be governed by its set of rules as adopted by its congress.
The congress of the AFN adopted a constitution for the federation in November 2017 where the powers and functions of everybody linked with the administration of the sport is clearly spelt out,” he said.
The AFN Secretary General dismissed reports that there is a new Director General who will perform the functions of the Secretary General as provided for in the AFN constitution.
The All-Comers meeting will be used to select the first set of qualified athletes for the first AFN Classics which will hold in Ado Ekiti at the end of February 2020.
”Already a number of athletes have arrived Akure and have been accommodated by the federation. Other athletes and officials are coming in today,” added Beyioku.
