Powerful Northern Caucus Meets In Kano To Pick Next NFF President
The powerful Northern Caucus, who form the majority of the NFF Congress, will pick a consensus candidate for the NFF Presidency at a crucial meeting in Kano on August 8, www.insideglasshouse.com has gathered.
A long list of men from the North has so far been associated with succeeding Amaju Pinnick as NFF President .
They include but not limited to Ibrahim Gusau, Shehu Dikko, Adam Mouktar Mohammed, Ahmed Yusuf ‘Fresh’, Musa Amadu, Abba Yola, Daniel Amokachi.
The general thinking for the three geo-political zones of North Central, North West and North East is that after eight years of Pinnick from the South, it is now the turn of the North to take over the leadership of Nigeria Football.
August 8 will be the kick-off of the Sharif Inuwa Ahlan annual pre-season tournament and it will be just five days to a likely NFF General Assembly proposed for Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.
A notice for this NFF Congress has yet to be sent out, though.
It was further gathered that one of the interested parties, Ahmed ‘Fresh’, has already bought flight tickets for the FA Chairmen from the North Central ahead of this all-important meeting in Kano.
