Group blames Falcons’ flop on injustice

By Ime Bassey

The Torch-Light of Nigeria Football and the Leader of the Credible Football Elections Group – Barrister Iyke Leo Igbokwe has advised the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to immediately order the  return of the winners of the League Boards Election – National League, Women League and Amateur League back to their duly elected duty posts.

Igbokwe in a release stated that the failure of the Super Falcons to do well in Germany could be traced to the injustice being meted out to Mrs Dili Onyedinma who despite winning the women’s league chairmanship election has not been allowed to function.

“Chief Emeka Inyama (National League), Chief Mrs. Dili Onyedinma (Women League) and Alh. Kawu (Amateur League) should get back to office immediately to administer the strategic Leagues which they were elected by their various League Clubs to manage,” Igbokwe stated.

The former Gabros of Nnewi scribe said the electoral injustice meted out to Onyedinma and others must be redressed if the Flying Eagles must fly in Colombia in the U-20 World Cup.

“The Super Falcons exit from the ongoing FIFA Women World Cup can be  attributed to hard-luck which bedeviled the talented Coach Eucharia Uche girls. The outing in Germany was the best showing by the Falcons, yet they failed to go beyond the first round. I believe that if Chief Dili Onyedinma led the Super Falcons to Germany, the result would have been different.

To avoid the Flying Eagles
flopping in Colombia, the NFF must act now. These things are governed under the natural laws of Karma and retributive justice. If somebody is denied his right, there is always some repercussions as we saw in Germany in the Super Falcon’s case where they played so well and yet crashed out.”

Igbokwe charged the Alhaji Aminu Maigari board to immediately correct the mistakes of the past to avoid further bad-luck that would tarnish and diminish its excellent performance so far so that its avowed enemies would not cash in on it.
