Alleged Disappearance of $150,000 IAAF money: Reps to investigate AFN

The House also resolved to summon the Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung and Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN officials over alleged disappearance of 150,000 dollars from the International Amateur Athletic Federation (IAAF) to the Athletic Federation of Nigeria (AFN). This followed a motion under matters of urgent national importance by Rep. Douye Diri (PDP-Bayelsa) during plenary. Moving the motion, Diri noted the reports published on various news outlet where the IAAF reportedly paid the sum of 150,000 dollars to AFN, instead of 15,000 dollars which was its annual grant to member federation for the year 2017.
