Nigeria’s Federal Government has stated categorically that it is not going to involve itself in veteran boxer, Bash Ali’s Guinness World Record boxing bout.
According to the Nigerian Government, the proposed fight is under the control of the Nigerian Boxing Board.
The Ministry of Youth and Sports Development in a statement said the Federal Government has distanced itself from the fight after sending series of correspondence and documents to Ali.
According to the Ministry, it has also informed the boxer through his lawyers, B.O. Nafagha & Co., to refrain from acts that interfered with the activities of the Ministry of Youth and Sports Development.
It added that Ali had been pressuring the Ministry to endorse the fight.
A letter written to Ali’s lawyers and signed by Gabriel Aduda, the sports ministry’s Permanent Secretary, says “The ministry under the directive of Mr. President in a letter, dated 10th March, 2020 made it clear that it is not the proper platform for your client to realize his pet project.”
