WADA removes Nigeria from World Anti-Doping Code non-compliant list
21 February 2019
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) announces that, following a circular vote of its Executive Committee (ExCo), the Agency has today removed the Nigerian National Anti-Doping Committee from the list of Signatories deemed non-compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code.
The Nigerian National Anti-Doping Committee was asserted non-compliant by WADA’s ExCo at its meeting of 14 November 2018 and this non-compliance became effective on 6 December 2018 after the Nigerian National Anti-Doping Committee chose not to challenge the assertion of non-compliance. Since then, the Nigerian National Anti-Doping Committee has implemented the corrective measures required to address its non-compliance, in cooperation with the South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport (SAIDS).
The Nigerian National Anti-Doping Committee continues to work with SAIDS and WADA to further enhance its program.
