FIFA has sent a letter,yesterday, 9 September, to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) confirming that the conditions set out in FIFA’s letter of 3 September have been met and that, therefore, the NFF is not suspended.

The NFF had been set a deadline of 8 September to ensure that the persons claiming to have been elected to NFF positions vacated the association’s premises and to confirm that the NFF General Secretary could perform his work without interference.

In the meantime, FIFA has received a letter from the NFF with these assurances and with an explanation of the positive steps taken to normalise the situation.

Responding to the NFF today, FIFA outlined that it now expects the NFF Executive Committee to meet as soon as possible in order to convene an extraordinary general assembly to decide on the roadmap leading to the elections, which should be open to all persons complying with the NFF statutes and regulations.

FIFA also emphasised that should the electoral process be affected by any interference or mishap, the case would be referred to the appropriate FIFA bodies and that FIFA would monitor the situation as the NFF progresses towards the elections.

It is now hoped that the NFF members would do the needful to allow peace to reign in the glass house and hence the resumption of our local league matches.
