Nigerian Sports Ministry Releases Elections Time Table

Nigerian Sports Ministry Releases Elections Time Table

A revised timetable for the Nigerian national sports federations’ election has been released by the country’s sports ministry.

The deadline for submission of forms is now May 19. Verification of names of representatives of other constituencies except those from the zones will take place between May 23rd and 24th 2017.

Initially, a release from the Ministry of Sports indicated that zonal elections hold on May 25, while bye elections arising from petitions and appeals at zonal and constituency levels will take place on June 7.

But a follow up note indicates that “all elections into the National Sports Federations will hold same day June 13th 2017.  This includes the Zonal and Presidential elections.”

The main election date still remains June 13.  That is the date for elections into positions of federations’ presidents and vice presidents while the inauguration of the Boards of National Sports Federations hold same day.
