NFF to ‘weed out’ corrupt officers
Acting president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Mike Umeh, has said he will lead the fight to rid Nigerian football of “all corrupt officers.”
Erstwhile president of the Federation, Aminu Maigari was on Thursday impeached “on grounds of financial misappropriation, misapplication and maladministration.”
Umeh, who took the reins following Maigari’s impeachment, said move to rid the Glass House of “individuals of questionable character is ongoing as we look to repair the damage done to Nigerian football.”
“We want to assure Nigerians that we will not relent in adopting due process in showing corrupt officers of the NFF the way out.
“I can state through this medium without fear or favour that the procedure of kicking out individuals of questionable character is ongoing as we look to repair the damage done to Nigerian football.
“That is my immediate mandate. We are not small boys. We know what to do,” he told supersport.com on Thursday.
Umeh will preside over the affairs of the NFF, pending the composition of the new executive committee of the Federation after August 26 elections.
