AFN Leadership Tussle: Abuja High Court Upholds Gusau As AFN President

….I Remain AFN President- Olamide George


The crisis that is rocking the Athletic Federation of Nigeria AFN on Wednesday takes a new twist as the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja Court 3 has affirmed that Hon. Ibrahim Shehu-Gusau remains the president of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN).

In a suit filed by Chinedu Gerald Udora, Esq. Counsel to Hon. Gusau, the Court in a landmark judgment delivered on Wednesday by Hon. Justice A. I. Chikere of the Federal High Court 3 in Abuja Division, nullified the purported suspension and subsequent impeachment of Hon. Gusau as well as all other actions and resolutions are taken by the Hon. Olamide George’s led AFN.

The Court went further to hold that the purported appointment of Hon. Olamide George as Acting President of the AFN is a nullity and went ahead to set it aside.

In a quick reaction, factional President of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) has said that he has not been removed from his seat as reported in some newspapers; he added that he remains the position pending when he appeals the Abuja High Court judgment

Olamide George while reacting to the court pronouncement in an exclusive interview with BSN Sports said, “It is a declarative and not an enforceable judgment. Nigerians should remain calm as i remain the president pending our appeal.”
