Amaju calls for revolution in Nigerian football

By Jacob Ajom

The executive chairman of the Delta State Sports Commission, Pinnick Amaju has frowned at the quality of persons that scramble to be elected into the board of the Nigeria Football Federation.


Speaking at the international football expo in Lagos yesterday, Amaju challenged stake holders in the game who have proven themselves in their various areas of endeavours to embark on a massive quest for positions in state football associations if the present situation must be reversed.

“It is the quality of state football associations that produces quality NFF congress and by extension, the quality of the NFF board is dependent on the quality of the congress. We should therefore re-appraise ourselves as we look at our football critically,” Amaju said.

Continuing, the Delta Sports Commission boss said, “to me the most elemental thing is the quality of personnel at the NFF secretariat. If we get good personnel and very good heads of department in the NFF, things will move on well.”

He disclosed that although Delta state sports council was still the sole financier of Warri Wolves Football Club, its management was moving forward into deals with sports wear manufacturing firm, Adidas.
