he federal government has directed the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, to iron out the crisis rocking football governance in the country.
It would be recalled that the world football governing, FIFA, last month suspended Nigeria from all its football related activities after the NFF president, Aminu Maigari, was removed from office over claim of misappropriation of funds.
FIFA lifted the ban after the court case was withdrawn and Maigari reinstated to his post.
Few days later, the NFF boss was replaced by his deputy, Mike Umeh, who has been acting as NFF president.
However, the crisis got to a twist last week when two NFF executive committee members, Chris Green and Ahmed Yusuf ‘Ahmed,’ were suspended.
According to Supersport’s report, it was gathered that after a meeting with the Nigerian Sports Minister, Dr Tamuno Danagogo, on Monday, 11 August, 2014, the NFF was informed to resolve the differences in its football community which has attracted international attention.
“Some members of the NFF board met with the minister yesterday in Abuja. The only clear word from that meeting is that the board members were told to go and resolve their issues and find a way to ending the ongoing crisis,” one of the sources close to football administration in Nigeria told newsmen.
Football analysts are of the opinion that this latest development could lead to the return of Maigari considering that FIFA had in a letter dated 4 August, 2014 demanded explanation on his removal from his office.
A source, who is familiar with football administration in Nigeria, informed that the embattled Maigari might return to office this week and resume as president of the football federation ahead of the NFF elective general assembly billed to hold on 26 August, 2014
