Explaining the issue, AFN Vice President, Olamide George told The Guardian: “I think the money came just when we were taking over from the past administration. “But the truth is that it is only the AFN secretary who knows how he received the IAAF money. “If the money was paid into AFN account, it could have gone through the Treasury Single Account (TSA).
