The Nigeria Archery Federation (NAFED) may be embroiled in crisis if not nibbed in the bud following the vote of no confidence passed on its president, Alhaji. Mohammed Baba Abdullahi by the stakeholders in the South West Archery Zone.

In a communique issued after meeting on Saturday 17th February 2024, the South-West Archery Zone passed a vote of no confidence on the president and the executive board members and requested for the hosting of the election in Lagos instead of Abuja.

The communique further stated that the President was absent from all programmes outside Abuja since assuming office as well lack of support or acknowledgment for athletes representing the Federation internationally while alleging that a bill of N2.675m was prepared and sent to Lagos State Archery Association as part of the condition to host the congress.

The communique said the current leadership failed in actualizing article 13 of the Federation constitution with the stakeholders noting the outgoing board’s negligence in the growth of the game while attributing the Federation’s suspension and looming ban to the outgoing President and Executives’ ineffective performance. Nigeria will not be allowed to compete internationally if the situation remains the same by April 1, 2024 by the international body.

It will be noted that the tenure of the current board ends on the 10th day of March, 2024.
