With the Appeal Court not entertaining the arguments of the Ministry over the Ibrahim Gusau Athletics Federation Nigeria leadership crisis, the Ministry of Youth and Sports Development is heading to the Supreme Court.
A source in the Ministry’s Legal Department disclosed that the Ministry was utterly shocked at the outcome of the appeal and “is definitely heading to the Supreme Court”.
“What do you expect”? the source queried. “This individual sued the Minister and the Ministry in the first instance dragging them through the courts after he shunned all panels and processes put in place to resolve the matter.”
Findings also indicated that the Ministry is already in touch with two Senior Advocates of Nigeria who will handle the matter.
For over a year now, the AFN has been embroiled in leadership crisis with Gusau, who was alleged to be running the AFN illegally against the resolution of nine members of the 13 board membership and the constitution of the Federation.
