Ministry set to announce committees for federations’ polls by : 2:54 am On May 10, 2021


Youth and Sports Development Ministry will soon constitute committees to conduct elections for the 31 federations, whose boards were recently dissolved on the expiration of their tenures.

The ministry on April 30, 2021, dissolved the boards of 30 National Sports Federations and replaced them with caretaker committees.

Director of FEAD at the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, Dr. Simeon Ebhojaiye, explained in a statement yesterday: “In order to avoid a vacuum in running the affairs of the federations, the ministry swiftly constituted three-man caretaker committee for each of the federations to hold the forth before the elections that will hold in September, 2021.

“As part of efforts to organise concise and credible elections that will stand the test of time, the ministry has concluded arrangements to set up electoral committees, which will conduct the Federations elections in September 2021.

“The ministry will not rest on its oars in ensuring that its mandate, mission and vision are achieved in repositioning the sports Sector in Nigeria.”

Ebhojaiye did not touch on the situation at the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN), which is currently enmeshed in a leadership crisis that has factionalised it.

The parties to the crisis are already in court, but World Athletics recently gave the federation up till June 14 to conduct elections into the board.
