Ahead 2014 election: NFF may sacrifice Amadu



feelers emerging from the NFF Glass house, ahead of this year’s board election, are anything to go by, then the days of Barrister Musa Amadu as secretary General of the soccer federation are numbered.

Pace sport gathered that the incumbent board has resolved to ease out the Kaduna state born soccer administrator and replace him with a secretary general from the south west zone of the country.

pace sports gathered that the move has been endorsement by the National Sports Commission (NSC) after being briefed by the NFF board.

A competent NFF source disclosed to Daily Sunsports that the Alhaji Aminu Maigari led board believe the coast to their return would become clearer should they woo the south west zone with the plum job, which in fact had since been zoned to that part of the country.

According to our source, football stakeholders from the south west are not happy that the present NFF leadership did not do anything to ensure that the zoning arrangement at the Glass House was respected and are waiting for the elections later this year to vent their spleen on the present board.

In a bid to ensure the present arrangement does not work against it, the Maigari board is said to have resolved to install a secretary from south west before the elections billed for later this year.

It would be noted that the tenure of the present board will expire after the Brazil 2014 World Cup and a soccer big fish from the south west is warming up to challenge Maigari for the presidency.

Our source pointed out that the present board would not want to take anything for granted despite doing so well.

“You know this is politics. You must play your card well. Yes, the present board has done very well and would be enjoying the support of Nigerians, but in politics, you must ensure you cover all loopholes and this is why the board has resolved to effect a change at the Glass House. A secretary from the south west is likely to step in any moment from now. In fact two candidates have been shortlisted for the job,” our source disclosed.
