In a bid to escape the world governing body hammer , Nigerian government has declared that it recognised the Amaju Pinnick-led executives as the authentic head of the Nigerian Football Federation

FIFA was due to release its final verdict on the Nigeria’s membership of the soccer body, due to the politicisation of soccer in Nigeria.

It isn’t the first time Nigeria football body would be involved in this kind of mess.

Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Laolu Akande, made the position of the government known a shortwhile ago in a tweet @akandeoj.
