Sports Minister Inaugurates committee to investigate Nigeria’s Participation at 2019 World Athletics Championship in Doha

Nigeria Minister of Youth and Sports Development,  Sunday Dare will on Monday inaugurate a Committee to review the Participation of the  Athletics Federation of Nigeria at the 2019 World Athletics Championships in Doha, Qatar. 
This, according to the minister, are parts of measures to forestall a reoccurrence of the challenges that resulted in a poor showing for Team Nigeria athletes at the tournament.

The inauguration,  which is scheduled to hold by 2pm at the Media Centre, Package ‘ A’,  MKO Abiola Stadium in Abuja, will set the terms of reference for the Committee, chiefly amongst which will be to investigate the immediate and remote causes of the unimpressive performance of Team Nigeria at the Doha games and the general disaffection amongst the athletes.

It would be recalled that  the Minister directed the recall of Sunday Adeleye, Technical Director of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria from the World Athletics Championships on the heels of avoidable, massive and unacceptable technical and administrative lapses  that embarrassed  the nation during the championship
Medal hopeful, Blesssing Okagbare was also disqualified in the 200 meters event for encroaching into another athletes lane thereby frustrating Nigeria’s hopes of making any meaningful impact in a championship that the Nation invested so much into preparation and participation.
