NFF Elections: Federation to look into hitches, complaints

There has been condemnation of the handling of the sale of forms.

The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has expressed concern over the handling of the electoral process ahead of the August 26 elections into the NFF Executive Committee.

There have been complaints and criticism from some members of the federation.

“We have received phone calls, phone messages and emails, and there have been media reports of persons being denied forms for unclear reasons. The litany of complaints and widespread condemnation has been deafening. The best legacy that this team can give to Nigeria football is a flawless electoral process leading to credible elections,” Mike Umeh, NFF’s Acting President, told the journalists on Tuesday in Abuja.

Particularly, there has been condemnation of the handling of the sale of forms, he said.

Mr. Umeh assured that the NFF would not turn a deaf ear to the cries of those who genuinely wish to purchase the forms and have been denied the chance to do so

“We will look at the issues arising from the entire process and take a decision that will be in the interest of, not only those bonafide members of the family who have been short –circuited, but also of the system.

“All persons eligible to purchase forms should be able to. It should be a level –playing field for all because we are keen on credible elections that will satisfy the yearnings of Nigerian ball fans and make our country proud,” stated Mr. Umeh.
