Nigeria escapes FIFA ban hammer over Glass House controversy

Nigeria has escaped the dangling FIFA ban threat over the controversy surrounding the leadership of the country’s football governing body.

The world football governing body, FIFA, suspended its planned ban of Nigeria from its participation in football activities. The decision was contained in a statement issued by FIFA .


[penci_blockquote style=”style-2″ align=”none” author=””]The world football body also confirmed that it would continue to closely monitor the situation in order to ensure that FIFA’s rules and regulations are fully upheld.[/penci_blockquote]

“FIFA received confirmations that the legitimate leadership of the NFF under President Amaju Melvin Pinnick and General Secretary Mohammed Sanusi has been given back effective control of the NFF and its offices.

“In view of these circumstances, FIFA deems that the conditions set by the decision of the Bureau of the FIFA Council have now been met and consequently the suspension of the NFF will not take effect,” FIFA said

The world football body also confirmed that it would continue to closely monitor the situation in order to ensure that FIFA’s rules and regulations are fully upheld.

It would be recalled that FIFA had on  Aug. 14  threatened to suspend Nigeria if its offices are not handed over back to the rightful executives by  12:00 (CET) on Monday.

The NFF Glass House had recently been occupied variously by both the Chris Giwa and Pinnick factions of the federation’s Congress, an action that was not without the connivance of both the men of the Nigeria Police and the Department of State Services.
