Plot To Postpone NFF Elections Gets December Deadline
The grand plot for next year’s elections into the NFF Executive Committee to be postponed till 2023 has to be perfected by December, checks by InsideGlassHouse.com have uncovered.
The plot was initiated at the recent Extra-Ordinary Congress in Benin City, which many observers dismissed as illegal and an exercise in futility.
NFF 1st Vice President Seyi Akinwunmi (Pictured) was named to head the Statutes Amendment Committee and he will be supported by 2nd Vice President Shehu Dikko.
This committee is expected to submit its report in time for the Congress to vote in December for the polls to be shifted till 2023.
Akinwunmi, Shehu Dikko and Ibrahim Gusau (interestingly all three are on this so-called Statutes Amendment Committee) all nurse ambitions to topple incumbent President Amaju Pinnick and it is left to be seen how they will agree to a shift of the polls billed for September 2021, when it will only be in the best interest of one person – Pinnick.
The main argument for the shift of the polls is that it will coming too close to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and that is supposing the Super Eagles qualify for the tournament.
But the real reason is that qualification for the World Cup will guarantee the NFF at least $10 Million, part of which could be diverted as usual as war chest to buy votes and conscience.
The last two NFF Elections, in 2014 and 2018, have been marred by massive vote-buying, which is a crime in Nigeria.
