Don’t blame us if FIFA bans Nigeria – Chukwuemeka


The interim Committee set up by the parallel congress of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has described the action of the newly elected board led by Chris Giwa to occupy the secretariat of the NFF as illegal.

Ephraim Chukwuemeka, a member of the interim Committee who visited the NFF secretariat yesterday said the election was a sham because the August 26 congress was only to chart a new road map for the conduct of elections into the board of the NFF .

“What is happening here is illegality and they are indirectly inviting FIFA to ban Nigeria . We are not interested in FIFA banning Nigeria but if it happens nobody should blame us because we are standing on the path of the truth.

“FIFA had said there should be no election but we should map the way forward for election which we have done. We have fixed election for Sept. 4. So anybody who is saying that he is the president of NFF is occupying the place illegally. We are not interested in using force because the law will take its course,” Chukwuemeka said.

He said the interim Committee would be assuming duty on Monday with the General-Secretary of the NFF.
