House of Representatives, yesterday, urged warring factions in the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, to put football loving Nigerians first ahead of their personal differences.
Chairman, House Committee on Sports, Bukar Goni, who gave the charge when his colleagues resumed peace talks to resolve the lingering NFF crisis, maintained that no individual should front his personal ambition at the detriment of the nation.
The House committee chairman also reminded Ambassador Chris Giwa and Amaju Pinnick groups of the mandate given to the committee by the green chamber and requested for their cooperation.
The committee summoned Pinnick and Giwa’s NFF boards who appeared before them yesterday.
After the remarks to herald discussions aimed at chatting the way forward, the chairman excused all members of both groups before they went into closed session with only Pinnick and Giwa.
At the end, Deputy Chairman of the committee, Anayo Nnebe, told journalists that their deliberation was fruitful but that conclusion will be reached next week Tuesday when they reconvene.
In their separate reactions, Pinnick and Giwa expressed delight in the approach deplored by the committee while pledging their commitment to ensuring peace returns to Nigerian football.
