Dalung, Collins disagree over AFN elections.

The Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung has debunked claims by NAWIS representative on the Board of the Athletic Federation of Nigeria, Rosa Collins, that she was robbed of her presidential mandate describing it as falsehood and a ploy to mask her inability to emerge as president of the federation.

This followed accusations in the media that the Minister cancelled the bye elections as decided by the Electoral Appeals Committee into the Athletics Federation just to favor some unnamed groups.

Dalung explained that in view of additional information provided by those affected by committee’s decisions which showed clear evidence that the Appeals Committee was misguided, some decisions were upheld while others were dismissed.

The Sports Minister, said Rosa Collins name was replaced by Gloria Obajimi who did not contest the NAWIS election, thus the Appeals Committee reviewed the case with evidence and reinstated Collins with Brown Ebewele who was also replaced by Gad Onwuamegbu on the Technical and Coaches committee.

He concluded that the Legal Department of the Ministry will not hesitate to file legal proceedings against individuals or group of people who had initiated a smear campaign against the Ministry.
