Badminton Federation To Conduct Exams For Potential National Team Coaches

The Badminton Federation of Nigeria (BFN) has concluded plans to hold oral and written interviews in March 13 and 15 for the coaches that have applied for the national coaching jobs.

33 coaches have applied for the vacant job and they will have to undergo oral and written interviews after the decision was reached as part of the resolutions made by the BFN board at its Abuja meeting over the weekend.

According to the BFN President, Francis Orbih, the Badminton Federation would like to employ a head coach for both the junior and senior teams in addition to two assistants for each of those teams.

In his words at the end of the meeting, Orbih said: “At the meeting, the umpires association made a presentation that they plan to have their election by April and we have actually asked the three association to forward to the federation their constitutions. The umpires association submitted its constitution and our observation was that it should be updated because it seems it was done quite a while ago. For the other two associations, the board decided to dissolve their executives and put in a place a three-man committee to run the affairs of those associations into having elections to elect a new Exco.”
