Nigeria Football Crisis: Maigari resigns

Aminu Maigari

The impeached Nigerian Football Federation, NFF, president, Aminu Maigari, has officially resigned from his post, PREMIUM TIMES learnt.

Mr. Maigari submitted his resignation letter to the NFF scribe, Musa Amadu, on Wednesday morning in Abuja, a source who pleaded anonymity told PREMIUM TIMES.

“I can confirm to you that Aminu Maigari has submitted his resignation letter and the board has accepted it. I can also further tell you the Federation forwarded a copy of the letter to FIFA immediately for necessary actions,” our source said.

The spokesperson for the Nigeria Football Federation, Ademola Olajiire told PREMIUM TIMES that it is true that Mr. Maigari sent in his
resignation letter.

“Well, I can only tell you that something like that happened today but I have not been officially briefed. I didn’t see the text of the letter”.

Mr. Maigari had been controversially impeached by the Executive Board of the NFF.

FIFA then queried the NFF on the procedure that led to his impeachment.

It is not clear if the impeachment was reversed before Mr. Maigari sent in his impeachment letter

    Embrace Creative Change: Vote Wisely, Nigerians

    As the sun rises in the East and sets in the West
    may we move forward and not backward.

    Embrace the change generated by building strong institutions
    such as the strengthening of electoral justice
    empowering the electorate by making sure their voices are heard through their votes

    Embrace the creative change of

    empowering citizens through unrestrained freedom of speech

    plugging corruption through accounting systems-IPPIS and IPS
    that prevent direct access to money by those who work for the govt, that being Nigeria’s chief source of corruption

    Embrace the positive transformation created by

    fighting doggedly against religious extremists
    and never giving up in the face of various distractions

    building schools for impoverished children in Northern Nigeria

    integrating them into modern society
    shielding them from murderous fanatics who want to feed on hunger, pain and alienation to create terrorists out of the children

    Hold tight the creative force


    gradually transforming the national transport system
    through rebuilding abandoned rail transport and dilapidated roads

    developing and executing agricultural initiatives
    that enrich the nation beyond dependence on oil

    developing increased power supply through diversifying
    the management, generation and distribution of electricity

    managing the most prosperous economy in Africa
    even as we work to expand the power of that economy to all Nigerians

    embrace the transformative power thus represented by the government of Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
