World Relays: How Gusau Sabotaged Nigeria’s Participation

May 05 16:58 2021

The last has not been heard of why Nigeria failed to take part in this year’s World Relay championship which serves as qualification for the relay event of the Tokyo Olympic games

The Investigator can authoritatively report that embattled former president of the Athletics Federation Of Nigeria, AFN, Alhaji Ibrahim Gusau is believed to have a hand in this mess.

An inside source, who is also a top official under the Gusau led board, told the Investigator that Gusau had threatened to sabotage Nigeria’s buildup to the Olympics and has fired the first shot with the World Relays blackout.

After changing the password of the AFN email and making himself the only person that can exchange correspondences with the international body, Gusau has now moved a step further, by surreptitiously sending an email to the IAAF that Nigeria will not be participating in the World Relays in Poland .

It took the Olumide George
led AFN board several days to get across to the IAAF to reverse this decision but at that time, the damage has already been done.
