BariboteEmbattled former boss of the Nigeria Premier League, Victor Baribote, has said that he is withdrawing the law suit against the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), because vengeance belongs to God.

Baribote convinced his wife to drop the legal matter, which saw him drag the NFF to a civil court – an act that is clearly against FIFA statutes.

“We looked at the situation and agreed that revenge belongs to God. And that it would be wrong for us to insist on our position to the detriment of millions of Nigerian youths and our country,” Baribote said.

“So, we decided that we vacate the case.”

He also revealed that his wife gave two conditions, before the ruling was quashed.

“Yes, she gave two conditions. That the board of the NPL be reinstated and allowed to run their term,” he said.

“And the second condition is that my ban be lifted.”

The Aminu Maigari-led board are now expected to be reinstated, so FIFA can lift the ban which it imposed on Nigeria for interference.
