July 21 11:50 2021

  • Ibrahim Gusau and Adeleye who signed the contract charged to court

The refusal of the Minister of Youth and Sports to allow Nigerian athletes to be kitted in Puma wears has drawn attacks and blackmailing stories against him. The Minister will not be part of a contract to which the contract documents have not been seen and the kits also not seen. A non disclosure agreement was signed by the duo of Gusau and Adeleye on behalf of AFN for five years without recourse to the Board. Till date, both the Ministry and AFN has seen the Non-disclosure agreement signed.
Payment made by Puma also were made into the private account of Dynamic Solutions DSS, a company owned by Adeleye instead of being paid into the account of the AFN.
The Ministry insists that before Team Nigeria wears any foriegn brand, it must sight and be privy to any agreement signed. Ni ether Gusau or the AFN has presented a copy or details of the contract signed by Gusau with Puma.
The Ministry steered clear of the clouds over the Puma kits and went for local content as directed under the local content law of Nigeria. Ministry and AFN went for a local garment producer to kit Team Nigeria.
Gusau and co afraid of the institution of a legal case against them if the kits are not used are sponsoring media attacks against the Minister for refusing to bend and for insisting on the rule of law.
