UPDATE: NFF meeting ends with no concrete resolution

Aminu Maigari

Another meeting would be held next week.


After meeting for about 8 hours on Friday, the board of the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF, declined to announce if it reached any major decision.

The meeting was held amidst tight security at the NFF secretariat and presided over by the embattled chairman, Aminu Maigari.

Mr. Maigari was reinstated after a suit filed against his leadership was withdrawn. The withdrawal, and Mr. Maigari’s reinstatement, led to the world football governing body, FIFA, lifting the suspension on Nigeria.

Briefing journalists after Friday’s meeting, ‎ the head of the media committee of the NFF, Emeka Inyama, said, “We are here to interact with one another, We really cannot call this a meeting but an interactive session, but the board will meet again next week Thursday.”

He thanked President Goodluck Jonathan and the Sports Minister, Tamuno Danagogo, for their intervention.

Mr Inyama said the board will pay the sports minister a courtesy call.
