Outspoken former athlete and current board member of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN), Brown Ebewele has warned that the track and field body is set to stage another jamboree to this year’s Commonwealth Gamnes.
‘Jujuman’ predicted that the AFN would only make up the numbers when hostilities begin at the Gold Coast 2018 in Australia, because they are going with a crowd of quantity, not quality.
The former Sports Commissioner in Edo State says the AFN has no business going for the Commonwealth Games since majority of the athletes the federation hopes to parade are not medal prospects.
He also reacted to the sudden disappearance of national athlete, Emmanuel Bamidele from AFN’s Commonwealth Games camp in Port Harcourt.
He stressed: “Since we no longer have capable people managing our athletes, I don’t see any reason why they won’t run away to other countries.
