Maigari resigns as NFF president

The president of the Nigeria Football Federation, Alhaji Aminu Maigari, has formally resigned his position on the NFF board with the effect from August 26, 2014.

Maigari had earlier been suspended by the NFF board following a raft of misconduct charges leveled against him, but was reinstated by Global football governing body, FIFA.

 “The Bauchi-born administrator resigned as NFF President on August 12, 2014 to pave way for a peaceful resolution of the crisis that engulfed the football federation shortly after the 2014 FIFA World Cup,” a letter from the SA Media to the Honourable Minister of Sports, Patrick Omorodion, said.

In other news Sports Minister, Tammy Danagogo has stepped in to resolve issues with Stephen Keshi’s Super Eagles contract which was put on hold after the catastrophe that struck NFF’s headquarters at Abuja last week.


 “Keshi has agreed to carry on with the job because of his love for the team and the country and because of my intervention which was necessitated by the prolonged negotiation between him and the NFF,” the Minister said yesterday.
