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
