Nigerian Football has again been literarily thrown into ‘raging fire’ following the modus operandi on which the Board members of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF are adopting to put World Cup money from World Football Governing Body, FIFA.
The sharing formula Nigerian Pilot Sports gathered was kept in cooler till last week when embattled NFF President, Amaju Pinnick instructed immediate past General Secretary, Barr Musa Amadu to withdraw $3.6million and pay back into the coffers of the federal government, an order that met stiff opposition.
Sources within the football house revealed that Amadu and few Board members preferred to hold on to the money after Nigerian lawmakers backed the football house to appropriate the intervention fund and go ahead to spend it.
One of the prominent Board members, Chris Green, who equally held sway during the then Aminu Maigari-led NFF was among those opposed to the idea of crediting FG’s fund.
Green’s position, we learnt, angered Pinnick and most Board members loyal to him.
“Plans have been concluded to send Barr Green to football exile. He incurred the wrath of many and they are not happy with him,” an impeccable source disclosed to Nigeria Pilot Sports.
Prior to the receipt of the FIFA money by the NFF, it was gathered that both Green and Amadu had been ensnared with the Federation waiting for opportunities to unleash its plans.
Barr Green, Rivers State FA Chairman, narrowly secured his position back as his state numero uno after he smartly refused to travel out with Golden Eaglets to Niger during the just concluded U-17 African Champions League.
Meanwhile, the new NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi has called for patience in the current imbroglio plaguing the country’s football.
Sanusi, who spoke in Abuja shortly after his appointment, assured that flaring nerve would soon calm down and that his plans would be rolled out as time go on.
