Fear grips NFF, as Nigerian  government  issues deadline    to amend statues

By Abdulgafar  Oladimeji

Nigeria’s minister of sports development, John Enoh has directed Nigeria Football Federation, NFF to embark on the   immediate  amendment  of the statues governing the  affairs of the federation.

The  government top sports administrator and former senator of the federal republic of Nigeria at a strategic meeting with the  top echelon of the federation mandated the federation to amend its statues within the time frame of one year.

The minister further directed the federation to draw a  definite time line period under which it   would amend   the statues governing the administration of football in the country.

Enoh explained that the amendment of the statues to accommodate all football interest groups would arrest the waves of  disputes  that has persistently derailed the development and promotion of the game.

A  top football administrator and ally to the Ibrahim Gusau led Glass House told this reporter  that , the directive is alarming , noting that the order is best described as a subtle coup against the Ibrahim Gusau led NFF by some  opposing   interest, who are hell bent  in taking over the governing of the game.

The source who spoke under the condition of anonymity  said “ the directive by the minister  is not only disturbing , it is like  telling us that you are going to ignite a bomb, the situation  is fragile presently  and it is been managed by our president, if  I understand the language used by the minister very well, we are heading for another era of showdown in our football industry,

“the minister is looking for trouble by listening to some people, who are around the corner and whispering into his ears, what is not good for the game , we have to be careful not to pull the roof down or throw away  the  baby with the bath water.” Our source warned.
