Elaborating on the EDM, Ali said, “We just bought a Timetronics device for the Warri event. It is the first time that we will be using EDM (Estimated Distance Measurement) device in Nigeria and this means that officiating officials will no longer use tapes to measure distances in events like Long Jump, Javelin etc.
