The chairman, electoral committee, Otunba Prince Jambright in his opening remark shortly before the commencement of the election said “It is with great privilege and honour I stand before you to deliver my speech as the chairman electoral committee of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria.
I will like to use this medium to welcome guests and participants to this onerous national election.
As the electoral body saddled with the responsibility of conducting elections of the board of athletics federation of Nigeria,
we must be seen as honest, transparent in the discharge of this task before us and we must justify the confidence reposed on us. WE MUST NOT FAIL TO DELIVER
You all will agree with me that one of the importance of athletics and the major roles it plays, is the development of the country, the fostering of relationships amongst the youths and the unity it brings both across and within society
It is therefore imperative for us to seize this golden opportunity once again to unify our people especially now that the country is facing so many distractions from secessionists across the states who are mainly youths.
Undoubtedly, sport is a unifying factor that brings us together regardless of our ethnicity and religion.
May I therefore humbly call on members of this committee to kindly exhibit their unflinching support now and throughout the process of this exercise.
As I declare this program opened, I call on members to avail themselves the opportunity to deliberate on the importance of this all important August gathering.
As the election comes to the end, the chairman commended the process as being peaceful, staying that he believes the newly elected AFN executive will carry out their duties and responsibilities as expected for a better performance.
