Rerun election into four National Sports Federation boards will take place on Wednesday, July 12.

The federations are athletics, gymnastics, wrestling and taekwondo.

Abdulrazak Salau, chairman of the NSF electoral appeals committee, in a statement, said that the influx of petitions which followed the June 13 elections at the Abuja National Stadium were overwhelming and needed more time to be addressed.

” We have had a beehive of activities since the Appeals Committee gave its verdict on June 30, 2017,” he said.

“The Committee has been bombarded with petitions and complaints from these Federations including Rugby.

“It became necessary for us to shift the election re-run date by 5 days to enable the monitoring bodies including the Election Committees to conclude screening and verification of candidates to ensure that what happened in the first election does not repeat itself.

” We are very careful to also ensure that candidates comply with the guidelines and present the right documents for verification.

“Thereafter, the master list will be published for all to see before the bye-elections.”

Asides the presidential election into the aforementioned federations, zonal election will also be held in federations such as judo (south-west) athletics (south-east and north-west) and taekwondo (south-west).

The rugby federation election will also take place on July 12.
