July 17, 2014 – FIFA Lifts Ban On Nigeria, Maigari & NFF Board Back To Work

Nigeria has agreed FIFA’s demand for the reinstatement of sacked NFF President, Aminu Maigari.

Today, Aminu Maigari-led board resume work as normal thereby prompting FIFA to lift the suspension.

The crisis that has rocked the Nigeria Football Federation since Maigari was sacked on July 6 has been resolved today in line with FIFA’s demand.

Nigeria was lucky to have the world football governing body extend the deadline for compliance to today due to the judicial workers strike which prevented the court to sit on the earlier fixed July 15.

The Amos Adamu-led lobby team sent to FIFA by sports minister Dr. Tammy Danagogo to intimate FIFA on issues that necessitated Maigari’s removal returned to the country yesterday and has submitted its report, which hasn’t been made public.

The latest development has saved Nigeria bid to participate in the U-20 FIFA Women’s World Cup, as well as the male African U-17 Championship qualifier this weekend.

    @ Natasha williams do you know that fifa has every right to ban any country that does not go by their rules and regulations, because fifa pays every country millions of dollars to each country who makes it to the world cup, and that money should be used for training,buying equipments and paying the players their money. so please read on your information a little more before kill fifa. At least US pays their players and use the money for training.
