Gusau to face AFN panel tomorrow

Tue Dec 17th, 2019 - Abuja (FCT)

Embattled President of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN), Shehu Ibrahim Gusau has been told to appear tomorrow before the panel set up by the federation to investigate allegations of financial impropriety, misapplication of funds and breaches of the AFN constitution against him.

In a letter dated December 13, 2019, and signed by Oluwole Afolabi, chairman of the investigative panel, Gusau was asked to appear before the committee at 10.00 am at the AFN Board room, MKO Abiola National Stadium, Abuja.

“You are kindly requested to attend the meeting with relevant documents to buttress your submissions,” the letter read.

Gusau was suspended for breaching some articles of the federation’s constitution, including article 6.1.4, which demands at least a 60-day notice must be given before any form of congress can convened.

The suspended president, however, convened the congress exactly 29 days to the date of the congress in Awka, Anambra State.

Gusau is also expected to account for the over N92 million he allegedly collected from the Federal Government for some championships held between 2017 and 2019.
