Minister of Youth and Sports Development , Dr. Sunday Dare, has declined comment on the contract deal gone awry between the Athletic Federation of Nigeria and Puma.
Speaking on a current affairs program, Politics Today, monitored in Lagos on recently , Dare said he wouldn’t want to say much on the case because it’s subjudice.
Dare however said lessons have been learnt from the fallout of Tokyo Olympics and that committees have been set up to review the outcome.
On some Nigerians donning other national colours in the Olympics, Dare said Nigeria is looking at what’s making other countries attractive to our athletes in term of grant, equipment and training facilities.
He, however, explained that adopting an athlete that the ministry introduced is achieving a lot in term of mentoring.
“ I wouldn’t want to comment on the Puma deal because it’s subjudice. There’s a litigation on the contract deal. And it’s between the AFN and Puma. The ministry of sports is not involved in the deal. “ He said.
