Amadu: NFF Crsis Is Over

Amadu: NFF Crsis Is Over

General secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Musa Amadu, has said the leadership crisis that has rocked football in the country is over.

FIFA gave Nigeria a Monday morning deadline for Chris Giwa and his group to quit the NFF office or Nigeria will be banned after they claimed they won a recent election into the executive committee of the NFF.

Amadu made his declaration when he resumed work at his office in Abuja on Monday after a week absence.

“It has been a trying period of two months for all of us, but I believe we have come to the end of this crisis,” Amadu told reporters.

“Nigerian football is far more important than any one of us. Let us put everything behind us.

“We have to now do the right thing in order to move our football forward.

“We will soon have an extra-ordinary assembly to set a date for elections for the new executive committee. This will be at the shortest possible time, not beyond September 25.”

NFF president Aminu Maigari, who has been reinstated to office by FIFA and will preside over both the extra-ordinary general assembly and elective congress thereafter, has yet to return to office.

    Shame on ‘Minister of Football’, Tammy Danagogo. Meanwhile, the sudden loss to Congo is a blessing in disguise. If we managed to win that game or getting a draw, Stephen Keshi wouldn’t have faced reality that his team needs surgical operation. Now, he has recalled the Uche Brothers. I believe Nigeria will qualify and it is a pity South Africa is confronting Nigeria at a wrong time (when we have just lost a qualifying match), remember what happened in Tunisia in 2004. We lost our first match to Morocco and the next game was against South Africa and we took the pound of flesh from them (4-0), a game of annoyance. The same thing will happen on Wednesday, just wait and see. This is not mere boasting; this is reality of what will happen on Wednesday, their fans will leave the stadium disappointed. Super Eagles for life.

    Keshi should bench Ramon Azeez and use either Joel Obi or Kalu Uche. Emenike and IK Uche should start the match, while Gbolahan Salami comes in to replace either of them in the second half. I want to recommend that Mikel Obi too should be dropped or probably start from bench, he is not a natural No. 10. If at all he is to play, he should play what he plays for Chelsea (holding midfield). Omeruo should be told to brace up, while Oboabona should be benched for either Odunlami or Egweke, Oboabona’s fitness is doubtful. Echiejele should be benched for Oshaniwa. With this line-up, South Africa would be in trouble.
