Following the uncertainty and controversy that has held sway with regards to the timing of the 7th edition of the D.K Olukoya Youth and Junior Championships, the competition has been suspended until a yet-to-be determined date.
Information reaching Making of Champions suggests that this decision was reached because a good number of Youth and Junior athletes are currently writing their Senior Secondary School Certificate Examinations, and would be unavailable for the competition.
Instead, the first Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) All-Comers Meet will now hold in Port Harcourt on Wednesday, April 12th, and will be open to athletes in the Senior, Junior and Youth categories.
AFN President Solomon Ogba disclosed that a national Youth and Junior Trials will be held after the athletes have completed their examinations.
