Speaking to reporters at the Congress, the vice president for the Athletics Federation, Gboe Wilson, said the Federation will do all it can to execute the programs for this year.
He said due to the Ebola outbreak last year, no sporting activity was possible but with the passage of the budget for 2015, the Federation is going full blast.
