I remain AFN president, says George

President of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN), Olamide George, has said that he remained the president of the federation.
He explained that he remained the position as he appealed the Abuja High Court judgment.

Reacting to the court pronouncement, George said, “It is a declarative and not an enforceable judgment. Nigerians should remain calm as I remain the president pending our appeal.”

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja Court 3 affirmed that Hon. Ibrahim Shehu-Gusau, remained the president of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN).
In a suit filed by Chinedu Gerald Udora, Esq. Counsel to Gusau, the Court in a judgement delivered on Wednesday by Hon. Justice A. I. Chikere of the Federal High Court 3 in Abuja Division, nullified the suspension and subsequent impeachment of Gusau as well as all other actions and resolutions taken by the George’s led AFN.

The Court also held that the purported appointment of George as Acting President of the AFN is a nullity and went ahead to set it aside.
