NFF chief Maigari impeached
The President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Aminu Maigari, was on Thursday impeached by the Federation’s executive committee members.
The members took the decision during Thursday’s executive committee meeting in Abuja, kickOffNigeria.com reports.
Maigari was accused of “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.
Consequently, in a motion for impeachment moved by Shehu Adamu and seconded by Deji Tinubu, the committee passed a vote of no confidence on the NFF president.
A communiqué at the end of the meeting stated that “the committee approved the immediate dismissal of Alhaji Aminu Maigari, from the NFF Executive Committee on grounds of financial misappropriation, misapplication and maladministration.”
The body’s First Vice President, Mike Umeh, was appointed Acting President, to preside over the affairs of the Federation, pending the composition of the new executive committee after the August 26 elections.
