NFF Sacks Aminu Maigari (As President) by LMAyedun(m): 1:59pm On Jul 24, 2014
The President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Aminu Maigari has been impeached.

Maigari was impeached by eight votes to five of the 13-man Executive Committee as members reconvened to review Nigeria’s participation at the just concluded World Cup in Brazil.

Last night (Wednesday), the embattled NFF President made spirited effort to shift the Executive meeting that he scheduled, citing ministerial directive.

But, the Special Adviser to the Minister, Justice Joffa, had dismissed Miagari’s words when contacted by Prompt News.

A communiqué issued by the Chairman of the Communiqué Drafting Committee, Muazu Suleyman reads in full, “

The Executive Committee of Nigeria Football Federation met at the NFF Secretariat, Abuja on Thursday, 24th July, 2014 to review situation after the vacation of Court Injunction as well as the resultant lifting of suspension by FIFA, and resolved as follows:

1) The Committee expressed deep and very sincere appreciation to President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR as a person, and the Federal Government as a body, for massive and continued support to the Nigeria Football Federation and the National Teams.

2) After thorough and exhaustive deliberations on the uncalled-for secrecy surrounding all financial dealings of the Federation and failure to call meeting of the Executive Committee for the past eight months, during which so many weighty decisions on Nigeria football had been taken by a small cabal within the Board, the Executive Committee passed a vote of no confidence on the NFF President, Alhaji Aminu Maigari.

3) In view of the above, the Committee approved the immediate dismissal of Alhaji Aminu Maigari, from the NFF Executive Committee on grounds of financial misappropriation, misapplication and maladministration.

4) The Committee resolved to mandate the 1st Vice President, Chief Mike Okeke Umeh as Acting President, to preside over the affairs of the Federation, pending the composition of the new NFF Executive Committee after the elections of Tuesday, 26th August, 2014.

5) The Executive Committee commended world football –governing body, FIFA and the Confederation of African Football for its keen interest in the development of Nigeria football and pledged that the country will continue to abide by the dictates of FIFA and CAF Statutes and the FIFA –approved NFF Statutes.

6) Executive Committee thanked Nigerians from far and near for their patience and understanding during the crisis period and reiterated that concerted efforts are geared towards the development of football in Nigeria.

IN ATTENDANCE:

Alh. Aminu Maigari (President); Chief Mike Umeh (Vice President); Chief Emeka Inyama (Member); Mrs Dilichukwu Onyedinma (Member); Alh. Ahmad Muazu Kawu (Member); Chief Effiong Johnson (Member); Barr. Christopher Green (Member); Hon. Shehu Adamu (Member); Alh. Muazu Suleyman (Member); Mr. Ayodeji Tinubu (Member); Alh. Yusuf Ahmed ‘Fresh’ (Member); Chief Felix Anyansi-Agwu (Member); Hon. Suleiman Yahaya-Kwande (Member). Secretary, Musa Amadu, also in attendance.

The politics in NFF is dirtier than what we see in PDP/APC combined, and that's what has eaten really deep into our football competitions resulting into embarrassing tournaments for the Nation.

Politics in players selections.
Politics in players' fee
Politics in coaches salaries.

NFF, leave politics for the politicians.

Space booked.

Good thing they(NFF) has started dealing with their own problem themselves. Whether impeached President is guilty of the crime or not is still debatable. That is why the FG/EFCC should take legal action if they have enough evidence to prosecute him. It will serve as a deterrent to others who want to taint the Nation's image with their greed.
