PFAN Divided Over Alleged Inducements, Promises
The ranks of top PFAN officials have been sharply divided after inducements and promises were allegedly made to some of them by the NFF to ensure a new players’ union is formed without further delay.
PFAN President Tijjani Babangida (PICTURED) appeared to go against the position of the players’ union with a statement this past week urging for peace and siding with the NFF.
It was alleged that the NFF leadership may have induced Babangida, while also promising to appoint him the leader of the new players’ union.
It was also alleged that another top PFAN official, Austin Popo, is willing to toe the line of the NFF as he hopes to soon be granted a Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) for a plot of land for an NGO in memory of the late Stephen Keshi.
Edo State Deputy Governor Philip Shaibu is the man as Chairman of the NFF Reconciliation Committee championing the plot to get rid of PFAN, which has instituted a case at Federal Appeals Court in Abuja, which could have serious repercussions for the outcome of last year’s NFF Elections in Benin City.
