  • Assures Nigerians On Finding Lasting Solution To Recurring Unpaid Bonuses of National Teams

The Meeting between the 10th Federal House Committee On Sports and the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) at the National Assembly on Tuesday aimed at restoring peace in Nigeria football ended with resolutions to get the country’s football back on track.

The Committee also charged the NFF to resolve the issues regarding the two affected State Football Associations (Plateau and Nasarawa) where Normalisation Committees were set up.

To this end, the Committee stated that the NFF should respect their statue.

“What we are simply saying following petitions received from the two State FAs is that the Federation should respect and go back to their statute to restore peace and order in Nigeria football,” the Chairman House Committee on Sports, Honourable Ekene Adams said.

Meanwhile, the President of the Federation, Ibrahim Gusau assured the House Committee that all the lingering issues regarding the State FAs elections will be resolved amicably within three weeks and would revert back to the House on the resolution.

The Committee and the Federation agreed to work together and find lasting solution to the recurring unpaid bonuses of all national teams.

When asked about the payment of the Super Falcons players, the Federation said it would be paid as soon as the money is received from FIFA.

As regards Awalu Baba Jara who was suspended following allegation of match fixing, the Federation has assured the House Committee on Sports to give the alleged offender fair hearing before final decision could be taken.
