The Nigeria Football Federation would decide on what to do with COVID-19 palliatives released by FIFA and CAF at its Executive Committee meeting on Saturday.

NFF President, Amaju Pinnick, confirmed this to newsmen via a message on Thursday.

“The decision will be taken after our executive committee meeting on Saturday,” Pinnick said in reply to an enquiry.

Newsmen had reported that FIFA approved $1m as universal solidarity grant to all member associations, while an additional $500,000 was specifically assigned for women’s football.

“This relief plan is a great example of football’s solidarity and commitment in such unprecedented times,” FIFA president Gianni Infantino said.

CAF also released $300,000 as grant, to mitigate challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Normal eligibility, requirements, to access the funds has been waived due to the exigencies occasioned by the coronavirus,” CAF said in a statement.
