Former President of the Cyclist Federation of Nigeria, CFN, Rev. Moses Iloh has described the suspension given on Nigeria’s FIFA and CAF Executive committee member, Dr. Amos Adamu last Wednesday as unfortunate for the country’s image but was quick to say it is not a surprise to him.
According to the former National Publicity Secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria, the suspension is worth it, following his dubious nature. He said the ugly situation has dented the image of the country but was confident of the good it will bring for the football house.
“Well I think it is very sad, but it is not unexpected. I do hope that this will lead to sanitisation of the Sports Ministry or Sports Commission.
I hope it will pave way for proper cleansing of our sports. It is so unfortunate especially coming from a foreign land but I’m not surprised. I think it will work for our own good.
“I am a Christian and my Bible made me to understand that all things work together for those who love God.
Now if you take a good look of this situation, it shows that the big mountain in Nigeria sports has been removed. I think the Octopus in our football has been removed, so it calls for celebration.
“Again the government might want to probe him because they want to protect the country’s image. For the Nigerian government, it is a shame to them. Whether they probe him or not, for me the government should go and hide themselves in shame because Adamu and the government are the same.
“The way forward is to take the advantage and sanitise our football, then we will now have clean administrators governing our football in a better way. It is indeed a blessing in disguise,” he said
