The FIFA emergency committee yesterday suspended Nigeria from its activities with immediate effect, on account of government interference. You will recall that a High court of the Federal Republic of Nigeria had sack the Aminu Maigari led board of the Nigerian Football Federation.
“The said court order compelled the Nigerian Minister of sports to appoint a senior member of the civil service manage the NFF until the matter was heard in court, without giving any date for such hearing. The authorities then appointed who decided to convene an extra ordinary general assembly on July 5, 2014. This extra ordinary general assembly was convened in violation of the NFF status” FIFA said.
FIFA further stated that the suspension will be lifted once the court order is withdrawn and the properly elected NFF Executive Committee, the NFF general assembly and NFF administration are able to work without any interference in their affairs.
Can NFF survive without the government?
