Edo 2020: Athletes Reject Adeleye’s Return Ahead Of National Sports Festival

Some athletes registered by Rivers State for the forthcoming National Sports Festival have threatened to dump the state if former Technical Director of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria, AFN Sunday Adeleye is re-engaged as consultant on sports by the state government.

This is coming following the appointment of Boma Iyayi as the Sports Commissioner who is likely to re-engaged Adeleye.

Iyayi engaged Adeleye as consultant on sports for River State for the last 19th National Sports Festival held in 2018 in Abuja and many had feared the ‘sacked’ athletes representative on the board of the AFN was on his way back despite his controversial exit from the job last year.

Adeleye was alleged to owe many athletes either part or full payments of allowances despite the state government fulfilling all financial commitments to the festival.
