ABUJA – The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) said on Monday that the country’s preparation for the 2014 FIFA World Cup had affected its earlier plan to relocate to its new office complex.
The NFF had planned to move into its newly constructed office complex located at the package B of the National Stadium, Abuja before the World Cup.
The relocation was planned to take place in three phases beginning from April and was expected to be concluded in June.
Musa Amadu, the Secretary-General of the NFA, however, told NAN in Abuja, that the NFA had more pressing issues at hand than the relocation.
“The World Cup preparation is more important to us now.
“However, we are working with the consultant on that direction (relocation) and every plan is still intact,’’ Amadu said.
According to Amadu, the relocation is an in-house thing and that not being able to start the relocation process in April as earlier planned does not mean it will not happen.
He urged Nigerians to pray for the football house and the Super Eagles as they fine-tune preparation for the World Cup. (NAN)
