NAW S2 EP4: The National Junior Trials and ensuing Team Nigeria’s absence in Algeria reviewed, National Senior Trials previewed and fresh AFN Elections announced

July 7, 2017

After the AFN election that saw a new president emerge, the Appeals Committee has come to nullify it and call for a new presidential election.

 

We also review the first ever AFN/MOC National Youth and Junior Champs that was held at the Abuja National Stadium. We then talk about Nigeria being unable to present a team in Algeria, the first time it is happening in ten years, despite us being defending champions from two years ago.

 

We also talk about the National Championships coming up from July 13th-15th. We dissect all the controversies from the list of invited athletes to the dates. Why isn't the likes of Seye Ogunlewe, Regina George and co not on the team? On the other hand we also talk about the inclusion of so many MoC athletes. 12 of them made the team this year as against just 2 who did last year
