Following news of the unfolding $150,000 World Athletics grant scandal at Athletics Federation of Nigeria(AFN), Solomon Ogba has resigned.
The impending investigations over the World Athletics body funds which he cannot account for has made him find the nearest exit with the hopes of halting the investigation which is unlikely.
Ogba’s cry about interference by the Ministry of Youth and Sports Development at best is a false alarm and an escapist excuse to divert attention from the real issue.
The Ministry under the leadership of the the Minister Mr. Sunday Dare is working to ensure sanity returns to the Sports Federations which necessitated the investigation into the missing $150,000 at the AFN and Solomon Ogba who is also the only board member of the Federation who was not sworn in properly, should have allowed the investigation run its course as he claims to be an advocate of doing things right. Instead, he chose the most convenient route at this time under the guise of undue interference from the Sports Ministry.
