NFF may hold elective congress in June 2022

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) may finally hold its elective congress on its board in June 2022, reports.

It will be noted that the Annual General Assembly (AGA) will design the roadmap for the elections once the ex parte injunction suspending Congress from the meeting is vacated.

This is contained in a communique issued at the end of the NFF Executive meeting held on Tuesday in Abuja.

It can be recalled that the AGA to set the roadmap for the next NFF election cycle was statutorily scheduled to hold on 17th December 2021 in Lagos but an ex parte court order was served on the NFF from a Federal High Court in Bayelsa State to stop the meeting.

The NFF had since January 2022 approached the court to vacate the order and the next sitting is scheduled for 26th April 2022.

The committee has now proposed June 2022 for the AGA to statutorily set the roadmap for the NFF elective congress provided the order is vacated accordingly.
