Why ‘Chief Justice’ Amiesimaka Rejected Master Plan Appointment
Former Nigeria international Adokiye Amiesimaka has forwarded reasons why he turned down membership of the committee charged to draw up a Master Plan for Nigeria Football Development for the next 10 years.
In a letter addressed to Sports Minister Sunday Dare and dated October 12, 2021, ‘Chief Justice’ Amiesimaka said it would be a waste of his time as well as public funds for him to again be involved in another reform committee after the findings of similar such efforts, were never implemented despite the hard work that was put in.
“It is apposite to recall that carefully thought-through reports on similar subjects by other committees, some of which I was privileged to serve on, were received with high commendation by the authorities, only to gather dust,” he wrote.
“Accordingly, I respectfully decline your kind offer, as to do otherwise would amount to a waste of my time and public funds.”
