The Executive Committee of Nigeria Football Federation has appointed a 5-man team to keenly monitor the final stages of work being carried out by the contractors on the NFF headquarters, Sunday Dankaro House located inside the National Stadium, Abuja.
The committee met at the Hampton Hotel, Asaba, Delta State to deliberate on important issues in Nigerian Football.
The members of the Committee are Barr Seyi Akinwunmi (Chairman), Ibrahim Musa Gusau (Member), Aisha Falode (Member), Mohammed Alkali (Member), Ademola Olajire (Secretary).
In a communique issued, the Executive Committee also agreed that an integrated enlightenment campaign to encourage talented teenage girls to commit to playing football would naturally birth a women’s version of the annual NFF/Zenith Bank Future Eagles Championship, which will not only provide a pool of players for the age –grade women National Teams at first, but also align perfectly with the vision of the present NFF to build a sustainable football culture for Nigeria.
The board also charged the Super Eagles to focus hard and win away to South Africa’s Bafana Bafana in Johannesburg in November 2018 to fully guarantee qualification for the Africa Nations Cup championship.
The Committee also charged the technical crew of the Super Falcons, headed by Thomas Dennerby, to work diligently and assiduously to prepare the team for a successful defence of its continental title at the forthcoming 11th Women Africa Cup of Nations finals in Ghana, and thereby ensure qualification for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup finals in France.
