Sports Ministry punctures AFN’s claim to autonomy

first_imgRelatedPosts Buhari approves deployment of Permanent Secretaries New Perm Sec assumes duty at Ministry of Youth and Sports Ogba resigns membership from AFN Board The Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development has cautioned the suspended President of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria, Engr. Ibrahim Shehu Gusau, to subject himself to the outcome of the proceedings of the December 3, 2019 meeting in Abuja in accordance with extant rules and regulations.The Ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Olusade Adesola, gave the warning in a memo he personally signed on Thursday.Adesola also added that the Ministry is statutorily responsible for the formulation, supervision, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies and programmes on sports administration in the country.He said: “In the discharge of these responsibilities, the ministry, through the 38 national sports federations under its supervision, ensures the compliance with laid down rules and regulations of the code of governance, which the Constitution of the National Sports Federations recognises.“By appropriation, the ministry is equally responsible for the financial sponsorship of most activities of the national sports federations, the preparation and participation at international competitions as well as the presentation of Nigerian athletes at international competitions.“And, in accordance with provisions of Article 13(1) of the Code of Governance for National Sports Federations, each national sports federation is expected to furnish the ministry with its quarterly and annual performance report of its activities.”The Permanent Secretary, however, said Ministry acknowledges that national sports federations are independent in the administration of their day to day activities, but stressed that none of them could be said to be autonomous of government due to the constitutional provisions as well as the appropriation support from the Federation Account of the Federal Government.Tags: afnIbrahim Shehu GusauOlusade Adesolalast_img read more

Cyclone edges towards Ryanair

first_imgTrainer Shark Hanlon is leaning towards the Ryanair Chase with Hidden Cyclone following Cue Card’s defection. The County Carlow handler said: “I haven’t spoken to the owners yet but with Cue Card coming out of the Ryanair, in my own mind I would be tending to lean that way now. “It’s not definite as yet. I’ll speak to the owners and I’ll know more after that, but Cue Card coming out does open the Ryanair up that bit more. “You never know what might come out of the Champion Chase in the next day or two. “If Sprinter Sacre or Sire De Grugy came out, we might rethink. Nobody expected Cue Card to come out. “It’s a bit up in the air, but at the moment I’d be leaning towards the Ryanair myself, especially with the ground drying up. “We’re happy with him and he’s in good form.” Cue Card, so impressive in the Ryanair in 2013, will miss the Festival for the second consecutive season after suffering a late setback. Trainer Colin Tizzard said: ” He was making a noise and we had him looked at. He’ll miss Cheltenham but he should be OK for Aintree.” Ante-post favourite for the Ryanair is the Gordon Elliott-trained Don Cossack, with Ma Filleule next best on the list. The 10-year-old was runner-up behind Dynaste in the Cheltenham Festival Grade One 12 months ago, but looked set for a tilt at the Queen Mother Champion Chase after a brilliant display in the Tied Cottage Chase at Punchestown last month. He remains as short as 10-1 for the two-mile championship, but with Cue Card ruled out of the longer race on Tuesday morning and Dynaste already on the sidelines, Hanlon is now favouring the Ryanair. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Louis van Gaal says he has been driven to boredom and anger by his players

first_img “At this moment we have a lack of creativity and you can see that but they have done it (played well in the past) so they can do it.” So why, after spending over a quarter of a billion pounds on new players, can Van Gaal not inspire his team to perform well on a regular basis? Is it because he refuses to come to the touchline in matches to bark orders at his players like Sir Alex Ferguson did? “I’m not Sir Alex, as you know,” said Van Gaal, who has rarely come to the touchline to speak to his players during his spell at the club. “Everybody is different and I don’t believe in yelling from the sidelines. I believe in communication during the week, during the preparation and I believe in my players who have to perform. “It’s very difficult because of the noise. “A lot of managers are (yelling from the sidelines) but I doubt if they have real influence.” At times on Monday it seemed as if Van Gaal was in denial. He even offered the theory that traffic could have been to blame for the exodus by scores of supporters before Wayne Rooney’s 93rd minute penalty on Saturday. ”They are not thinking that we would score, I think, and maybe also because of the traffic,” he said. Van Gaal even suggested United fans should be happy with their team’s current form. ”You have to be happy as a Manchester United fan that we are in next round and we have won the last two games,” he added There was also a reminder to the supporters that life was not always rosy before he took over. “The fans have to know that we can’t always play fantastic football,” Van Gaal said. “And that was also the case in former days. I’m sorry, but it is like that.” Ryan Giggs and Scholes were ever-presents during Ferguson’s successful spell at the helm. Giggs has rarely been allowed to speak in public since he became Van Gaal’s assistant, so his thoughts on Scholes’ criticism of his boss are unknown. “No,” was the flat answer when asked whether Giggs ever discusses Scholes’ criticism of the club. Van Gaal insists the former winger who symbolised United’s attacking traditions with his playing style, does have serious input when it comes to the team’s current tactics, though. “He has a lot of influence in our decisions because I communicate every decision with my staff so he can have a big influence,” Van Gaal said. “I work in a fantastic way with Ryan so that’s the only thing I can say but when you want to hear something about his feelings according to what Paul Scholes or Gary Neville are saying, you have to ask him.” Louis van Gaal admits his Manchester United players have driven him to boredom and anger at times this season. Those wins have merely papered over the cracks, however. The pressure is still on Van Gaal because of the often dull and uninspiring performances of his team. Paul Scholes branded United’s style of play “boring” earlier this season and following Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Legue One opposition, the former club great claimed both Van Gaal and his players looked “bored” during the third round tie. Van Gaal has been at odds with Scholes for much of his 18-month spell at the club, but on Monday the 64-year-old conceded some of the football on display at Old Trafford this season has been rather dull. “There are matches that I have enjoyed,” Van Gaal said. “And there are also matches where I’m very bored or angry because we are not disorganising our opponent’s defence but that is football.” Van Gaal railed at the suggestion that his primary aim is to stifle the opposition, rather than attack. “Do you know that,” Van Gaal snapped during an edgy press conference at Carrington. “I am not concerned (about defending more than attacking). Van Gaal’s future as United boss will be thrown into question again on Tuesday if his team fail to win at Newcastle. United ended an eight-match winless run by defeating Swansea nine days ago and then followed that victory up with another triumph in the FA Cup against Sheffield United.

Joshua keen on Klitschko rematch after Wembley triumph

first_img(REUTERS) – IBF, WBA and IBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is eager for a rematch with Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko following the pair’s thrilling fight at Wembley on Saturday.Joshua defeated 41-year-old Klitshcko after 11 rounds in British boxing’s biggest bout to extend his winning streak to 19 fights. Klitschko’s record now stands at 64 wins with five losses.A clause in their contract allows the beaten fighter to ask for a rematch but Klitschko said he would take some time before making a decision.“A rematch will be good, because of the type of fight we had,” Joshua told reporters.“I think he will want to fight again, because a fighter is the last one to know when to stop. But I think the team around him, his (soon-to-be) wife, because they normally wear the trousers, and his brother might advise him differently.”Joshua said he respected Klitschko and had no qualms about a rematch.“I have the ultimate respect for him inside and outside of the ring. I wouldn’t mind fighting him again if he wants the rematch. It’s up to him. So if he’d like to fight again, no problem,” Joshua said.If Klitschko retires, Joshua could face fellow Briton and former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, who is yet to regain his boxing licence, after the two traded words on Twitter last week.last_img read more

Germany return to top of FIFA rankings

first_imgZURICH, Switzerland (Reuters) – World champions Germany pushed Brazil back into second place to return to the top of the FIFA rankings, published yesterday.Germany’s 2-1 win away to the Czech Republic and their 6-0 drubbing of Norway in the World Cup qualifiers lifted them over the already-qualified Brazil, who dropped points in a draw away to Colombia.European champions Portugal climbed three places to third – even though they are second in their World Cup qualifying group behind Switzerland.In another surprise, Argentina are fourth in the rankings despite struggling to qualify for the World Cup after drawing their last two games – away to Uruguay and at home to Venezuela.War-torn Syria, who have reached the Asian playoff stage in the World Cup qualifiers despite playing their ‘home’ World Cup qualifiers in Malaysia because of the security situation in the country, rose to their highest-ever ranking of 75.Three other teams reached their best-ever place – Peru (12th), Northern Ireland (20th) and Luxemburg (101st) after they held France to a 0-0 draw away.The rankings made disappointing reading for Asia with only three sides in the top 50 – Iran, Japan and Australia.The next FIFA rankings will be announced on October 16 and used to determine the seedings in the draw for the four European playoff ties for next year’s World Cup finals in Russia.Top 10 rankings: (previous positions in brackets) 1. Germany (2) 2. Brazil (1) 3. Portugal (6) 4. Argentina (3) 5. Belgium (9) 6. Poland (5) 7. Switzerland (4) 8. France (10) 9. Chile (7) 10. Colombia (8).last_img read more

Badgers head to Waukesha

first_imgThis fall, the University of Wisconsin women’s cross-country team would love nothing more than to crack into the upper echelon of Big Ten competition.Under second-year coach Jim Stintzi, the women’s team will be anchored by five returning distance runners who qualified for the NCAA Regional meet for the women’s track team this past spring.Even with seniors Linsey Smith, ‘A Havahla Haynes and junior Katrina Rundhaug leading the way, lack of experience could still be an obstacle for the team to overcome. With 12 freshmen and two transfer students joining the squad, UW looks to build on new legs and attempt to rebound from an eighth-place finish at last year’s Big Ten Championships.The Badgers will begin their season this Saturday, Sept. 10, competing at the Carroll College Invite in Waukesha.After Waukesha, the girls will proceed to invitational runs on the following three weekends in September. The team will get to do some traveling, leaving for Minnesota and Indiana later this month.When the Badgers return, they will begin Big Ten and National meets, with the season culminating at the 2005 NCAA Championships in Terre Haute, Ind., on Nov. 21.Rundhaug was the only Badger to receive an invitation to last year’s NCAA run. This season, Stintzi hopes to send her back, accompanied by other UW teammates.Smith, who redshirted the 2004 campaign after an appearance in the ’03 NCAA championship meet, is one of several possible runners looking to travel to Terre Haute. Haynes is the other top senior at UW, after being named to the all-Big Ten second team.Senior Maggie Grabow and sophomore Christina Fiduccia are the two transfer students for UW this year. Grabow, like Smith, is a fifth-year senior, and joins the team from Washington University in St. Louis for her last year of collegiate competition. Fiduccia redshirted at North Carolina State in ’04, but is coming off an appearance at the United States Junior Cross Country Championships.Also new to the team are incoming freshmen Alicia Pabich and Melissa Manke. Pabich and Manke bring impressive high school results to the squad, as do 10 other freshman hopefuls for this year’s team.last_img read more

Attorney says Title IX office mishandled case

first_imgKarissa Fenwick (left) sued professor Erick Guerrero (right) alleging that he sexually harassed her in January.Fallout from the sexual harassment lawsuit filed by a graduate student against a professor and the University continued to play out Monday with allegations on both sides regarding mishandling by the USC Office of Equity and Diversity.The attorney of Erick Guerrero, the professor involved in the sexual harassment lawsuit, sent a letter to the Daily Trojan accusing the office of committing “egregious violations” in its initial five-month investigation, which began when Fenwick reported the harassment on Jan. 19. “It’s a very arbitrary and unfair system where it doesn’t depend upon the evidence and actual facts,” said Mark Hathaway, Guerrero’s attorney, in an interview Monday with the Daily Trojan. “It’s very important that it’s thoughtful dialogue, and that these issues are determined in a fair and transparent way.”Guerrero filed an appeal on May 11 after the initial investigation ruled in favor of Fenwick, causing the office to reopen the case, according to Fenwick. After examining Guerrero’s appeal, the OED upheld the decision in Fenwick’s favor. Hathaway said in the letter that Guerrero filed a grievance to the Academic Senate on the grounds of his Title IX investigation, claiming the University withheld evidence from him.Hathaway said this violated the policy in the Title IX bylaws, which state that the investigators must “provide the complainant, the respondent and appropriate officials timely and equal access to information” used in any meetings or hearings in the investigative process.“Faculty disciplinary matters should not be guided by expediency and the momentary outrage of the majority, but rather by the well-established rules, practices, and policies that are set forth in the Faculty Handbook,” Hathaway said in the letter to the Daily Trojan.Fenwick and her attorney, John Winer, also expressed concerns regarding the length of the investigation in an interview with the Daily Trojan Monday. Winer said  the OED’s five-month investigation was not prompt, in accordance with California state law.Although Fenwick was satisfied with the investigation’s findings and the assistance from the OED investigators, she believed the reopening of the case after Guerrero’s appeal, which had new evidence and witnesses, was unnecessary. “[Guerrero] had been given multiple chances throughout the original first investigation to provide any evidence and witnesses,” Fenwick said. “This was not an appeal. It was treated like it was like a whole new investigation. It felt like an investigation of me — not of what happened.”Fenwick added that while she agreed with the findings of the case, she did not agree with the resulting consequences. Fenwick, however, did not file a grievance with USC and filed a lawsuit with Winer.Gretchen Means, OED’s director, did not respond to multiple requests for comment.last_img read more
