Alli rejects AFN committee appointment – The Sun Nigeria

Nigeria athletics legend, Yussuf Alli, has restated his earlier stance that his role in Nigeria sports, especially in athletics, is advisory.

Speaking against the backdrop of a newspaper publication that he has been nominated to serve as a member of the technical sub-committee of Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) Alli said, “I have had more than my fair share of serving on committees and subcommittees in AFN. I think it’s now time to give the opportunity to younger ones to serve, learn and grow on the job the way Abdulkareem Amu and MAK Ogun also gave me opportunities’ ‘

Alli recalled that he stopped competing in 1993 and he became AFN Technical Director and Vice-President a year later.

“I also served as Technical Director of AFN from 1995 to 1998. I was the coordinator of Team Nigeria to the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, I served in COJA when Solomon Ogba was president of AFN. I practically run the technical committee and department. Now it’s time for me to give opportunities to younger ones”

“The new president of AFN, Tony Okowa, is a friend and brother I am solidly behind him. To ensure that he succeeds, my doors are open to all committee members and other stakeholders in athletics all day and all night I am ready to assist them. My decision not to serve on any sub-committee is just to give younger ones opportunities,” said Alli.
