Though he expressed appreciation at the NFA’s conduct since assumption of office, the director general also warned that the executive committee members should not give room for Siasia to complain.

He advised that the parties should instead dialogue to fill the gap so that there would be no cause for misunderstanding, noting that victory brings peace as he urged Siasia to strive to always win so that whatever problems there are would be forgotten.
