NFF to lift bans on Baribote, Ogunjobi
The Nigeria Football Federation is set to lift the bans placed on Chief Taiwo Ogunjobi and former Premier League boss Victor Baribote.
Both Ogunjobi and Baribote were banned from all football activities for 10-years and 15-years respectively by an investigative committee set-up by the NFF’s Executive Committee last October, kickOffNigeria.com reports.
But a recent statement from the Federation revealed that arrangements are being made by the new administrators of the NFF to lift the bans placed on the duo following the removal of Aminu Maigari as NFF president.
To this effect, the Federation’s executive committee has constituted a five-man panel to review the issue of bans on persons within the Nigeria football family and report back to the body within three days.
The committee, which was immediately inaugurated by the Acting President, Chief Mike Umeh, is headed by Chief Effiong Johnson and has Hon. Shehu Adamu, Mr. Ayodeji Tinubu, Mrs. Dilichukwu Onyedinma and Hon. Suleiman Yahaya-Kwande as members.
Dr. Christian Emeruwa will serve as Secretary.
