Nigeria Approve Refund for Overpaid Money to IAAF 2 Years After

Nigeria’s Minister for Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has approved a refund for the IAAF overpayment wrongfully credited to the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN).
The IAAF had in 2017 overpaid the AFN with $150,000 instead of $15,000 and the then Minister for Youth and Sports Development, Solomon Dalung, failed to complete the refund.
Sunday Dare noted that the funds will be available to the IAAF in a few days time and Nigeria’s reputation will be regained.

The Minister however noted that the refund was for the outstanding balance of $65,000 (sixty five thousand US dollars).

The first trench of the refund was made by the former Minister, Solomon Dalung few hours to his departure, returning 50% of the money to the IAAF.
It was also gathered that Dalung in a phone call with the IAAF’s president, Sebastian Coe had promised to return some money which he did before he left office.
