Kaduna Golden League moved to Port Harcourt

The 1st Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) Golden League 2011 has been moved to the University of Port-Harcourt Sports Complex, Port Harcourt. Rivers State.

The first Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) Golden League of 2011, initially scheduled for Kaduna, has been moved to the University of Port-Harcourt Sports Complex, Port Harcourt. Rivers State.

A released signed by Maria Wophil, the Secretary General of the AFN, confirmed that the dates however remain unchanged.

“The Golden League will begin on Friday May 6 and end on May 7. The violence that rocked the city of Kaduna that we had earlier scheduled to host the first leg forced us to move it to Port Harcourt. We don’t want to risk the lives of our athletes in an environment were people are rioting over elections,” said Mrs Worphill.

Mrs. Wophil also denied speculations by a section of the media that the competition has been placed on hold due to sponsorship problems.
 
“I don’t know where the reporter who wrote that report got his facts from. We (AFN) never told anybody we were having funding problems over the league. Everyone in the country is aware of the developments in the political climate and if we opted to move the League to a place that we feel is more secure, I don’t know how that translates to cancellation,” she added.
