FIFA Sack NFF Executive Ahlan As Refs Committee Boss
World football governing body FIFA have effectively fired Kano State Football Association Chairman Sharif Inuwa Ahlan as chairman of the NFF Referees Appointment Committee, www.insideglasshouse.com can exclusively report.
A circular from FIFA to the NFF has ordered that referees appointment bodies across the world should now be headed by a professional, which in this case would mean a retired referee.
Ahlan is not a retired referee and so too his predecessor Ahmed Yusuf ‘Fresh’.
The NFF will now have to appoint a new Chairman of the Referees Committee ahead of the new football season.
