"FIFA Acted Based on Wrong information Given to Them By Ousted NFF Executives"- John Fashanu



Nigerian born ex-England player John Fashanu has come out to comment on the suspension FIFA placed on Nigeria.
He said the football governing body was not fed with the right information before it arrived at the conclusion to ban 2013 AFCON champions Nigeria from international football involvement, till it put its house in order: which can be interpreted as reinstating Aminu Maigari.
“What FIFA used in suspending Nigeria was correspondence from the dissolved board of the NFF, who in my opinion lied about what truly went down regarding the court order and the congress.”
He recalled the court injunction by Mrs Baribote and disclosed that the matter should have followed with her than run to FIFA with a government interference claim.
“The court dissolved the board on account of a stakeholder’s injunction, so why not slam the person who took a football issue to a civil court as contained in their rules?
“But I guess the past board of the NFF misled FIFA by running to them with claims that Government influenced their sacking which isn’t true.”
Nigeria can avoid the suspension for a longer period if by July 15 they act according to FIFA’s recommendation.
Fashanu admonished the stakeholders to be factual in terms of matters that could cause an international embarrassment for the country.
“The wise thing they should have done was to submit all document from the extra ordinary congress to FIFA as soon as it was over and even before convening it, they should have informed FIFA, in that way FIFA will not slam ban hearing from a drowning board”
