The Nigeria Olympic Committee‘s Electoral Body has disqualified Engr Ibrahim Shehu Gusau and Mr Sunday Adeleye of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria from contesting Thursday’s election.
Engr. Ibrahim Shehu Gusau and Mr Sunday Adeleye were both seeking election into the position of President and the Treasurer of the NOC respectively.
The Electoral Committee headed by Alhaji Ibrahim Galadima said the duo failed to meet the guidelines set up by the Committee.
“The documents presented by Hon. Ibrahim Gusau for the position of President and Mr. Sunday Adeleye for the post of Treasurer did not meet the requirements as contained in the Electoral Guidelines.” The Electoral Committee said.
Reacting to the disqualification, Mr Sunday Adeleye said the Electoral Committee must come clean and must apply rules of fairness and equity in conducting the election, as he vowed to stop Tonobok Okowa from voting in Thursday’s election. He said the Electoral Committee has no right to disqualify them despite being legitimate delegates to the Elective Congress.
“The plot to disqualify us has been there since time immemorial. I challenge the Electoral Committee to come clean as we are going to resist every attempt and plan to allow one Tonobok Okowa from Delta State to vote tomorrow.
It is unfortunate that despite being legitimate delegates the Electoral Committee decided to play politics with people who are at the departure lounge.” Adeleye stated.
