FIFA ban: N253m monthly payments to NFF

The Federal Government has ordered the closure of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) bank accounts, as the crisis that has engulfed the country’s football continues to escalates.

This newest development comes few days after the government refused to pay the football house their monthly allocation for July, which amounts to N253million ($1,559,995 or £910,526).

“There is a general saying which states that you put your money where your mouth is,” a source told Daily Sun. “So, it is believed that this is the simple thing that the government has done.

“FIFA has asked the Nigerian government to stay clear of football matters and that has to be done in all areas, which includes funding.”

Ademola Olajire, the NFF’s assistant director of communication, is yet to respond to inquiries on this matter. (DailyPost)[eap_ad_4]
