As uncertainty continues to surround the future of football in Nigeria, General Secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation, Musa Amadu has sued for peace among stake holders.
On Friday, a Federal High Court in Abuja declared the NFF and NPL to be illegal bodies following a suit filed by Sam Sam Jaja challenging his unlawful disqualification from contesting elections in the League body.
Reacting to the ruling, Amadu stated that world football governing body FIFA is fully aware stressing that he does not expect any sanctions on the country.
“I ask all stake holders to take it easy and not get ahead of themselves. FIFA is fully aware because they know of everything that happens in Nigeria through the online media but I do not expect any sanctions on us.
“We should be talking about how our football moves forward after this without adverse consequences because the growth of our football depends on what happens inside and we must do our best to save it,” Amadu said.
“We are a big big country in world football, people respect us and we cannot afford to be thrown out of the world map.”
He maintained that the game in the country cannot afford to be thrown into another round of crisis.
The change of name from Nigeria Football Association to Nigeria Football Federation dates back to August 2008.
The bill to change the NFA act to NFF is presently in second reading at the National Assembly.
