AFN cancels Nigeria Athletics Championship

The Athletics Federation of Nigeria, AFN, has cancelled the All Nigeria Athletics Championship holding in Abuja, following protests by participating athletes over poor welfare.

AFN Technical Director, Sunday Adeleye, told newsmen that the decision followed an emergency meeting of the board of the AFN regarding the protest.

The All Nigeria Athletics Championships, which kicked-off at the Abuja National Stadium on Saturday, was supposed to be the National Trials for athletes expected to fly Nigeria’s flag at the All African Senior Athletics Championships which is to hold in Asaba, Delta State, this August.
