Nigeria: NFF Committees to Be Re-Constituted

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Media and Publicity Committee yesterday said that no standing committee of the association had been dissolved.

Chairman of the committee, Chief Emeka Inyama made the clarification in a statement made available to Trustsports in Abuja yesterday by the NFF Assistant Director (Media), Ademola Olajire.

The statement said that the affected committees would be re-constituted.

"We have read and heard in sections of the media that some committees have been dissolved, this is not so; they are only to be re-constituted.

"There is a marked difference between immediate dissolution and imminent re-constitution," it said, noting that the communique of the NFF Executive Committee was unambiguous on the matter.

"We will appreciate very much if the media can stay within the circumference of what was said in the communique."

The Executive Committee approved the re-constitution of NFF standing committees two years after their inauguration adding, that the two years tenure ended in August.

According to the NFF statutes, Article 42, pg 34, "the member of each standing committee shall be appointed by the executive committee on the proposal of the president of NFF.

"The chairmen, deputy chairmen and the members of the standing committees shall be designated for a term of office of two years," the statement said.
