Ogba Resigns from AFN Board
Chairman Delta State Athletics Association, Evangelist Solomon Ogba has resigned from the present board of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN).
Media Adviser to the two-time former AFN President, Olukayode Thomas confirmed the development on Monday, stating Ogba threw in the towel due to “undue interference” in the activities of the AFN.
According to Thomas, Ogba is uncomfortable with the dirty politicking in the AFN lately hence he informed the board of his decision to quit.
He said Ogba who is an advocate of doing things right is unhappy that the constitution and rules of the AFN have been relegated to the background even as things are now done without recourse to the law binding the federation.
“As an elder statesman in sports and athletics in particular, Ogba cannot sit and continue to watch things done wrongly” said Thomas.
“Though he has withdrawn from the AFN board, he will continue giving his support to athletics in Delta state and Nigeria as a whole” Thomas assured.
