Anti-Corruption War Visits NFF
President Muhammadu Buhari has extended the anti-graft war to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) saying that the footballing body should ‘behave itself’. Speaking at the Presidential Villa in Abuja with FIFA president Gianni Infantino, the president said that the world’s football governing body should support Nigeria in the development of football because of the passion Nigerians have for the game.
“Majority of Nigerians are married to football. In the rural areas, when there is no electricity and there is a game to watch, Nigerians go to the extent of renting small generators, popularly known as ‘I better-pass-my neighbour’ to watch the game. “We will take the development of football very seriously and I encourage the Nigeria Football Federation to behave itself and organize effective competitions for the good of the game.
