Chairmen of dissolved NFF board react to dissolution

NFF President, Aminu Maigari

The committees were dissolved on Wednesday.

Some chairmen of dissolved committees of the Nigeria Football Federation have been reacting to the dissolution of their committees.

The board of the Federation at its Wednesday meeting announced a shocking dissolution of its standing committees, except the judicial committee

The board said it relied on article 42 clause 2 of its statutes, which states that “the chairmen, deputy chairmen and the members of the standing committees shall be designated for a term of office of 2 years.”

The tenure of all the committees had lapsed since August 2012, according to the resolutions of the federation’s board..

Some of the chairmen have now reacted to their exit from office.

“I seize to work as the chairman of the security committee until the executive committee meet to reconstitute it properly according to the article 42.2 of the statute,” Effiong Johnson, former chairman of the security committee said.

Another board member and chairman of the defunct referees appointment committee, Suleiman Muazu, said angrily that “If they call me for a meeting I will not attend, you people shouldn’t address me as the chairman of any committee until the board reconstitute the committees.”

Leye Adepoju, the former head of the disciplinary committee referred to the dissolved committees as already dead.

“You don’t kill a dead body. It has died naturally and expired committee doesn’t need dissolution,” he said.
