Nigerian football surely would be thrown into a state of assured misery if by Friday, October 31, the football house and all aggrieved parties do not sheath their swords
No Mercy For Nigerian Football Until May 15, 2015
In a meeting with a Nigerian delegation; CAF president, Issa Hayatou blatantly said that the world is tired of Nigeria and if they get banned as they likely might, FIFA will not revisit the case until May 15, 2015
World football governing body, FIFA initially gave a Monday, October 27th deadline by which, if Chris Giwa, Amaju Pinnick, and every other aggrieved party do not let the administration of Nigerian football flow like the game should; the country would be not suspended but banned
A ban from FIFA now definitely would have a great ripple effect on the local and international players and the country’s international image. What’s worse is that it will not be revisited, once decided until the next FIFA General Congress on May 15, 2015
CAF member and former NFF technical committee member,AishaFalode disclosed
FIFA is aggrieved, CAF is tired, the world is fed up at the shambolic state Nigerian football has found itself; albeit, the ineptitude of the so called stakeholders
Eyes are raised, Tongues are clipped even as the Nigerian government through the Sports minister, Tammy Danagogo, ordered Chris Giwa to withdraw the suit against the sitting NFF president Amaju Pinnick, in earnest that the country beat the new October 31st date. Hit it or miss it, Zurich decides.
Reiterating the need for resolution in the presidency, Danagogo told newsmen in a chat on Tuesday that he is not interested in who the boss is at the NFF, all that matters to him is that football is run properly without recurring crisis
What woe betides the one person who causes Nigeria’s ban from international football, Danagogo reveals:
With all said and done the clock ticks closer to October 31st; this day will make or mar Nigerian football for the better.
