Nigeria will bid to host the 2025 IAAF World Championship according to the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) President, Shehu Gusau.
The AFN President was speaking during a media briefing held in Asaba on Saturday as the ongoing African Senior Athletics Championship draws to a close.
The Athletics Championship started on Wednesday, August 1 and will end on Sunday, August 5.
Asaba 2018 has been hugely disappointing due to the numerous setbacks witnessed since the opening day and it remains to be seen if Nigeria can convince the world about hosting the 2025 IAAF World Championship.
In his words, Shehu Gusau said: “By 2025, Nigeria will be ready to host the world. If we are ready to host the continent in 2018, we will be ready to host the world by 2025 in Abuja.”
#Nigeria will make a bid for the 2025 IAAF World Championships in Abuja, says the President of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) Ibrahim Shehu Gusau today at a media briefing in Asaba, Delta State.
