The Nigeria Football Federation has called on all Nigerians to
discountenance a statement by the Chairman of NFF Electoral Committee,
Mr. Amoni Biambo, to the effect that elections into the NFF Executive
Committee will hold at the General Assembly of Tuesday, 26th August,
2014. “The statement must have been made in error. As far as the NFF is
concerned, there will be no elections at the General Assembly of
Tuesday, 26th August. There is a proposal that we are taking to the
General Assembly (the supreme body of Nigeria football) for

Executive Committee of NFF.

form and contest the elections should be able to do so, and the process
must be one that dovetails into credible, free and fair elections, that
will stand the test of time, devoid of challenges by aggrieved persons
that will affect the smooth running of the NFF by the incoming Executive

The NFF scribe also made it clear that the persons who will be in
Warri for Tuesday’s General Assembly will be the same delegates who were
at the November 2013 General Assembly in the same city, except where
there have been changes that comply with the Statutes. “For example, the
unbanning of Chief Taiwo Ogunjobi and Mr. Chidi Ofor Okenwa means these
