Adeleye’s removal followed the report of the advisory committee on the poor performance of #TeamNigeria at the #WorldChamps in Doha.

A letter from the Ministry of Youth & Sports Development to AFN President, Engineer Shehu Gusau, directed him to inform Adeleye of his sack.

The letter reads: “Consequent on the recommendation of the Advisory Committee, I am further directed to convey the directive of the Hon. Minister for the immediate removal from office of Mr. Sunday Adeleye as TD of the AFN, on account of ascertained gross misconduct.

Accordingly, you are directed to convey to Mr. Adeleye in writing this directive & evidence of compliance delivered to the Honourable Minister.” The Advisory Committee had in its report indicted Adeleye in varying degrees in the handling of the Federation’s affairs in Doha.
