The 2014 Commonwealth Games holds in Glasgow, Scotland.
As part of its efforts towards ensuring that Nigerian athletes make podium appearances at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, the AFN set up a training camp to create an enabling environment for athletes to do their build up for the new season.
Mr. Abdullahi commended the federation for not waiting for the government before starting its programme. He promised to support the athletes and federation to ensure that they succeed at the Commonwealth Games.
The minister also urged the athletes to be good ambassadors at all times and to shun all vices that could tarnish their good image, that of the federation, NSC and Nigeria.
The Secretary General of AFN, Olumide Bamiduro, on behalf of the board thanked Mr. Abdullahi for not only identifying with track and field but also for financial and other support.
Mr. Bamiduro assured the minister that members of the board of AFN and the athletes will not let Nigeria down.
The athletes also thanked the Minister and promised to do their best to surpass the nation’s achievements at the previous Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India.
