The forthcoming elections into the board of the Nigeria Football Federation have taken a major twist as the majority of the Congress members are now calling for the Annual General Assembly to take place latest on August 15.
Authoritative sources revealed that a notice of resolution served in May is seeking for the AGA of the NFF to hold latest on August 15, which is exactly three months after the notice was given in May.
The majority of the Congress members are irked about the lack of activities in the secretariat of the NFF as the current board led by Amaju Pinnick seemingly foot-dragging over the elections expected to be staged in September.
“There are no signs to show that the elections are coming up. This current board is also showing bad example to others coming behind them,” our source added.
Investigations revealed that the NFF board is hinging the delay on the Bayelsa court case involving the body which, incidentally have been officially forfeited. The feelers are that the board is hiding behind allegedly waiting for a formal declaration of the withdrawal of the suit by the Bayelsa Court which curiously appears reluctant to sit on such a simple issue that can easily be disposed of even without a formal sitting.
A resolution sent to the President of the NFF through the General Secretary and signed by the Chairman of Gombe State FA, Yakubu Sarma, on behalf of a majority of the Congress members, however warned the NFF that the Congress will take necessary action if the AGA did not take place as scheduled.
The letter reads in part: “That the deadline demanding for the vacation of the ex parte order and notice of AGA from the Executive committee has elapsed.
“That the under listed Congress members are yet to receive any response from the Executive committee. That failure to act by the expiration of this notice shall lead to the next line of action.”
