World doping body to stop hoisting Nigerian flag at Olympics games



Reports from World Anti-Doping Agency, WADA, suggests that Nigeria’s flag may not be flown at the forth-coming African Games in Ghana and Paris 2024 Olympics over doping related matter.

WADA is asking that Nigeria’s flag should not be displayed at the Olympic Games as well as major competitions which may include the African Games holding in Accra next month.

This is one of the major sanctions that the agency is pressing against Nigeria and Venezuela which WADA has drawn to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).

WADA has alleged that both Nigeria and Venezuela have failed to comply with the agency rule and both countries were last November sanctioned for failing to address a number of “critical requirements” in their anti-doping programmes.

Chiefly, the Nigerian Anti Doping Organisation, NADO, has failed to comply with certain requirements made to it by WADA

Both Nigeria and Venezuela are also barred from hosting major sporting events. The details concerning Nigeria’s case can be found by clicking Nigeria
