Following this reports surfaced online that, Naser was asked if she had any message for the new board of the Athletic Federation of Nigeria, and she said, “I don’t really have anything to say to them. “The past three years have been a great transition for me and I’m glad. I have nothing to say to the AFN.”

Reacting to the viral news on social media, Naser took to her Facebook page to express her disappointment over the news making rounds. She wrote, "The Nigerian entertainment bloggers twisted my words and I feel shocked with the whole scenario they have put out there.

To my supporters I thank you for still standing with me especially those who defended my stance I have nothing but love for you all. Thank you and God bless".
