Athletics: AFN Change Date For National Trials Again
For the umpteenth time, the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) have changed the dates for the Nigeria Track and Field Championships.
The latest change came on the eve of the three-day event.
The federation had earlier curiously fixed Monday July 9 to Wednesday July 10,2018 for the competition which is meant to select Nigeria’s contingent to the African Athletics Championships which holds between August 1- 5 in Asaba, Delta state.
According to a statement from the federation, the new dates for the championships will now be Saturday July 7 to Monday July 9,2018.
The venue has also been moved away from Ozoro, Delta State to the Abuja National stadium.
Many have expressed worries on why the federation should deviate from the traditional Thursday to Saturday days to end a competition on Monday, the first day of the working week.
Also, some former athletes livid about how things are turning out in Track and Field in Nigeria have called for the sacking of the AFN president, Honourable Ibrahim Gusau who has seemingly proved to be nothing more than a novice in the sports he is overseeing.
