An awkward development has emerged after several members of the NFF executive committee and staff were ordered back from the CHAN in Morocco.
The report claims that the NFF executive committee members and staff, who had only touched down in Morocco on Saturday night, were asked to return to Nigeria by the sports ministry, who maintained they are not part of 500 million Naira budget for the CHAN.
“It’s rather embarrassing that the NFF officials as well as staffers will be heading back to Nigeria after only a night in Morocco”.
“Some of them have already reconfirmed their return tickets and will be leaving with the next available flight.”
The report further claims that the sports ministry, and not the NFF, is in full charge of Nigeria’s participation at the CHAN in Morocco and as a result, it was therefore the sports minister Solomon Dalung who ordered that the CHAN Eagles be paid a win-bonus for their goalless draw with Rwanda.
