Rugby Africa imposes suspension on Rugby Nigeria due to the dissolution of the Nigerian Rugby Federation by the Nigeria Ministry of Sport.
In a letter addressed to the sport minister and made available to the press, the regional body says it has no choice other than to take the action.
“The dissolution of the duly elected board of NRFF is against the stipulations of the approved Constitution and is highly disruptive of the Union’s operation. Consequently, we have no choice but to impose an immediate suspension of Nigeria’s participation in all Rugby Afrique and World Rugby activities until further notice. We do appeal I’m all sincerity that the Ministry allows the federation to follow its approved Constitution.” The statement says.
It will be recalled that 31 sport federations were dissolved and a three-man caretaker committee for each was set up to oversee these federations until an election is held in June this year.
