December 10, 2014 – General Secretary of Nigeria Football Federation, Barrister Musa Amadu, has shot down a report being circulated online by some persons that he denied receiving the letter from world football –governing body, FIFA, which firmly supported the majority decision of the NFF 2014 Electoral Appeals Committee.
“How can I deny receiving a letter that was addressed directly to me? I don’t know where that report is coming from. I duly received the letter and my position is that we now have peace of mind to focus on our plans and programmes for the development of Nigeria football.”
FIFA on Tuesday upheld the majority decision of the NFF 2014 Electoral Appeals Committee that upheld, in its entirety, the NFF 2104 Elective Congress of 30th September, 2014 in Warri. That Elective Congress brought into office Mr. Amaju Melvin Pinnick as NFF President, with other persons also into the NFF Executive Committee for a four –year term.
FIFA’s letter, signed by the Secretary General, Mr. Jerome Valcke, also disclosed that arrangements are being concluded for a meeting between FIFA President, Mr. Sepp Blatter and Mr. Pinnick.
