NFF Presidency: Three Ex-Super Eagles Players Set To Contest


NFF Presidency Three Ex-Super Eagles Players Set To Contest

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) presidency, is set to be contested by no fewer than three ex-Super Eagles players.

The lifespan of the current board of the NFF led by Amaju Melvin-Pinnick comes to an end in September this year.

According to DAILY POST, one of the former players who have indicated interest is Ben Akwuegbu, popularly known as ‘Austria Bomber’.

The other two are Jonathan Akpoborie and Idah Peterside who was a former goalkeeper in his playing days.

Those three former Nigerian national team players are showing interest and readiness to direct the affairs of the nation’s football after their playing careers.

In the past, only Chief Segun Odegbami, had, as an ex-player, contested, severally, for the NFA (as it was then) Chairmanship seat.

Apart from Akwuegbu, Akpoborie and Peterside who had played for the national team, there are some other people who have shown interest in the NFF presidency.

Some of those who have indicated interest are Mazi Amanze Uchegbulem, Imo FA Chairman and former NFF Vice President (2006-2010) during Alhaji Sani Lulu’s tenure, Chief Fan Ndubuoke, a former NFA Board member and ex-SWAN President and Christian Emeruwa, a staff of NFF and CAF Security Committee member.

The new NFF President is expected to emerge in September this year, though the Melvin-Pinnick-led board is fighting a legal battle to vacate a court order restraining the NFF from going ahead with the elective congress.

Without the vacation of the order, the September 2022 congress meant to elect Amaju’s successor will be difficult.
