The First Vice President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Seyi Akinwunmi has made a shocking claim, blaming lesbianism for the fall of women’s football in the country.

Speaking to pressmen in Ibadan, Akinwumni said Nigerian women’s football is at its lowest and blamed lesbianism for it.

Lesbianism kills teams. People are afraid to talk about it,” Akinwunmi said in a sports personality programme, Hot Seat, organised by the Oyo State Chapter of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria.

He also blamed the sexual relationships between male coaches and female players.

“The coaches take advantage of the girls, so there is much more to build in female football,” he added.

My passion for female football is as great as it is for grassroots football. But in reality, there are lots of problems with developing female football. It costs more and returns less. There are fewer players and less interest in female football than male football. But we have no excuse.

Last year, I think the most problematic person to the chairman of female league was Seyi Akinwumi, I launched several attacks just to ensure things worked accordingly. So, I decided that look, if it’s so difficult for you, let us show you how it’s done.”
