The Nigerian house of representatives has instructed the committee on sports to investigate the cause of Nigerian athletes failing doping tests.
This was following a motion raised by Hon. Lawrence Ayeni, drawing the attention of the house to the failed dope test of nigerian athlete, Blessing Okagbare at the recently concluded Olympics in Tokyo.
Nigerian athletes also topped the list of athletes that were barred from competing at the Tokyo Olympics due to their failure to carry our “Pre tournament dope test” months before the Global masterpiece.
The house is worried that athletes failed to comply with extant doping rules and has resolved to invite the minister of sports for clarification on the subject matter.
