FIFA stops $1.5million grant to NFF over “traces of corruption”

World football governing body, FIFA, has decided to stop their annual $1.5million development grant to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), because they found “traces of corruption” in how previous funds were spent.

According to AfricanFootball, FIFA has also issued the NFF a final warning “to straighten their financial records”.

Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung, had expressed his anger after FIFA sent a query on how NFF used grants they received.

The letter from the world football governing body was signed from the office in charge of the national associations.

FIFA member-associations including Nigeria, began to receive increased annual grants under new president, Gianni Infantino.

Initially, they were paid $250,000 annually, before it was increased to between $1.2million and $1.5million to each FA.
