FIFA reinstates Maigari as NFF Chairman
World football governing body, FIFA, today Thursday August 14th ordered the re-instatement of impeached Aminu Maigari as president of the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF.
The directive, which was conveyed in an email signed by the Deputy Secretary General of FIFA, Markus Kattner and sent to the NFF Secretary General Musa Amadu, stated that the NFF leadership must remain as status quo prior to the World cup in Brazil.
Mr Maigari was on July 24th impeached from office after a vote of no confidence was passed by some members of the NFF board. This will be the second time FIFA will be using its power to reinstate Maigari. With this new directive, Maigari and all his 13 board members earlier suspended will return to office until August 26th when a fresh election will take place.
