NFF row ‘over’ as Giwa steps aside

Nigeria look to have avoided an international ban as a row over the leadership of its football federation seems to have ended.

Chris Giwa looks to have given up his claim to be Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president in a move that coincides with a deadline set by Fifa.

The ultimatum was set last week for him to step aside or face a Fifa ban.

A suspension could have led to Nigeria missing Wednesday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in South Africa.

The Confederation of African Football said last week that the Super Eagles would be kicked out of the 2015 qualifying campaign should they fail to play the fixture.

“It has been a difficult time for our football but everything is over now,” Musa Amadu told BBC Sport.
