The country’s lower chamber had called on football stakeholders and asked probing questions on what should be done to avert another FIFA ban
Several of the country’s football stakeholders have been invited by the House of Representatives to explain what they know about the ongoing crisis in the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF)
The session which held in Abuja on Friday had several of the stakeholders given clear hearing on what should be done to avert another suspension or even ban from FIFA.
A member of the outgoing board of the NFF, Barrister Chris Green gave an insightful account of his harrowing experience at the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) cells in Abuja where he and the NFF President Aminu Maigari were thrown in with terrorists, kidnappers and murderers.
“It was a most dehumanizing ordeal,” Green was quoted to have said and his narration caused a stir among those that attended the hearing.[eap_ad_2]
Chairman of Nigeria Coaches Association, Bitrus Bewarang, equally told Goal that he produced a Plateau State White Paper which indicted Chris Giwa when he was the Chairman of Plateau United some years back.
He told Goal that he was surprised that Giwa took part in the illegality called the shambolic NFF elections where the electorate were some secretaries and chairmen of states football associations which was against the FIFA statutes which gives voting power to the states FA boss and that they could only be replaced by their secretaries if they are unavoidably absent.
Meanwhile, the country’s top security chiefs have been asked by the House of Representatives to explain why NFF president Aminu Maigari was detained without any charges brought against him.
Maigari was detained without any charges so that he won’t be able to preside over the NFF general assembly last Tuesday, only to be released shortly after the elective congress that was hastily arranged as against the directives from FIFA who backed a general assembly to work out a roadmap for hitch-free NFF elections.
The outgoing NFF president had on his part disclosed that he would prefer not to press any legal charges against his unlawful detention.  ([eap_ad_3]
