Mouktar Mohammed’s Emergence Shakes Up Nigeria Football Polity
The declaration of FCT FA Chairman Mouktar Mohammed for the NFF Presidency has jolted the entire Nigeria Football polity with many Stakeholders literally caught off guard.
The FCT FA boss has been a rallying point for many aspirants until a group of Stakeholders went ahead to buy his nomination form for NFF Presidency.
“I didn’t see this coming,” admitted NFF 1st Vice President Seyi Akinwunmi, who has always counted Mouktar Mohammed among his trusted allies.
“Mouktar Mohammed has changed the calculations leading up to the NFF Elections,” another FA Chairman said.
“He’s a breath of fresh air, away from the outgoing guard that has been widely discredited.”
Mouktar Mohammed also worked closely with the ‘Concerned FA Chairmen’ who were spearheaded by Katsina FA Chairman Aminu Kurfi aka ‘Dan Arewa’.
They also were taken by surprise when he threw his hat in the ring.
The same could be said of the group led by Ibrahim Gusau, which had been in close contact with Mouktar Mohammed before he finally made his declaration.
The successful businessman is young, vibrant and in his three years in charge of the FCT FA he has recorded giant strikes to underscore his competence and resourcefulness.
His ambition has already received the backing of several leading personalities.
