Newly appointed chairperson of the NFF Referees Committee, Faith Irabor has assured Nigerians that she will not let them down.
A few days ago the President of the Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) Ibrahim Gusau named Irabor as the chairperson of the committee and she also became the first woman to occupy the position.
While speaking to the Guardian correspondent on Monday evening Irabor assured that only referees that prove themselves will be engaged.
“One thing I will do is to try as much as possible to encourage those who will take their job seriously. It won’t be business as usual, and I won’t tolerate anything that will damage the image of our football.
As I said, those who are disciplined on the field will get my support because this present NFF Board is ready to back our referees to the highest level.
It is only those who proved themselves as good ambassadors inside the pitch will merit such an opportunity.
I have been in the league with men and was once the best Referee of the Year.
I will do this job and bring a lot of reforms in appreciation of the confidence reposed in me by the NFF President.
He wants to follow FIFA and CAF regulations, and we can see that everything is moving in the right direction. I won’t let Nigerians down”, she said.
