More Applaud Legal Action For Equal Rep At NFF Congress, Executive Committee
The legal push for equal representation of major stakeholders at the NFF Congress and Executive Committee has been widely praised.
Players’ union members Harrison Jalla, Rumson Baribote and Austin Popo have sued the NFF at a Federal High Court Abuja Division demanding for equal representation of the major stakeholders in both the NFF Congress and Board.
Former Super Eagles star Edema Fuludu (PICTURED) said this move should be embraced by all stakeholders who wish for Nigeria Football to be better.
“Nobody must misconstrue this as being against the present leadership of the NFF because that’s what those with myopic tendencies will delve into- not seeing beyond their nose,” he said.
“I want all responsible stakeholders of football in Nigeria to join their voice in the pursuit of emancipation. ‘Only our minds can free ourselves’ Bob Nesta Marley said.
“God bless PFAN.”
Former president PAGANSSAN Brown Ogbeifun said this was a bold bid that will succeed.
“Thank you for standing to be counted on the positive side of the struggle,” he said.
“It is not about an individual, but a movement to give Footballers, Referees, Sports Writers Association, and other stakeholders equal rights in the determination of sails in their own affairs.
“No matter how long it takes, the truth shall always prevail.”
One of the claimants Austin Popo was specially commended by Comrade Bala Kiagama, former President of the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC).
“Austin (Popo), this is a step in the right direction,” he remarked.
“God will help you overcome these challenges by His grace . Kudos.”
