Former Nigeria Football Association chairman, Ibrahim Galadima has vowed not to make the same mistakes that led to the suspension of Amos Adamu from the executive committee of the world soccer governing body, FIFA.
During the week, Galadima was nominated by the Nigeria Football Federation to seek election into the position vacated by Adamu. And the Kano-born sports administrator declared that he is going to CAF to represent Nigeria and not himself.
“Definitely I wouldn’t do anything that will bring the image of Nigeria to disrepute.
“I’m not going to represent myself but the entire country and that is why I want every Nigerian to give me their support. I want people to see it as a Nigerian job and not Galadimas,” he said.
However, Galadima will fight off opposition from Ghana’s Kwesi Nyantakyi and South Africa’s Danny Jordaan who are eyeing Adamu’s position.
Dr Adamu who was executive member of CAF, FIFA and President of West Africa Football Union, WAFU, was suspended for three years and fined after he was involved in the money for vote scandal. Adamu has since gone to the Court of Arbitration in Sports to prove his innocence.
