Light could be close for Nigerian football is the report that the Nigerian senate is trying to put an end to the seemingly unending problem which has heralded affairs in Nigerian football for years, is something to trust.
Following the rancour and expressive grievances which rocked the football house from the first quarter of the year 2014 till the month of October which almost earned the country a ban from the World Football Governing Body, FIFA; the senate moved this week to pass a bill that will empower the NFF to act on its own edicts and statutes without outside interference
Following the bill, the NFF becomes an autonomous arm of the executive, giving it all legal backing and support to operate fully in FIFA statutes which it signed on to
In addition, the bill restrains every stakeholder and administrator from taking football matters to civil courts
Whether the autonomy of the NFF would stop the monthly subvention it gets from the NFF is yet unknown, but it does not stop the football federation from making its own decisions.
