Maigari’s Sack: Fifa demands explanation


Maigari1-e1405876773901Fifa has asked the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) for full details of the circumstances and process leading to the removal of Aminu Maigari as its president. This comes on the heels of plans to move the elections into the board following complaints of disenfranchisement by aspirants. Maigari was impeached at an executive committee meeting last month, but the process was clouded by a member of the Exco claiming his signature was forged, and FIFA have now stepped in to demand an explanation. A Congress scheduled to ratify Maigari’s impeachment was called off due to unforeseen circumstances.[eap_ad_2] A day later, 30 of the 46 voting members of Congress issued a press statement distancing themselves from the impeachment process. The NFF executive committee is now expected to meet on Thursday morning with one item on the agenda being to call a Congress that would move the elections from the scheduled date of August 26. Prospective candidates for election into the board had complained that they were unable to collect nomination forms, let alone submit them by Monday’s deadline because the electoral committee was hoarding the forms while making themselves scarce. The committee could also be reconstituted in the wake of these allegations. (kickoffnigeria)[eap_ad_3]
