Foremost Sports caster and CAF Media Committee member, Aisha Falode, has come hard on calls by former NFA board member Princess Hannah Bola Jegede, that the NFF should suspend Women’s football for two years, following the failure of the national team to make it to the London 2012 Olympics.
“Where are we supposed to take the girls to or does she want them to become beggers across Nigerian cities?”, Aisha asked
“Nigerian Women’s football remains the best in Africa and we vehemently oppose any plan or design to stop it. Like everything in life, ups and downs will happen and that is what we’re witnessing and soon, we will bounce back to the zenith once again”.
She praised the huge support and motivation offered the Super Falcons by the Aminu Maigari led board of the NFF, noting that but for hard luck and the poor playing conditions in Yaounde, Nigeria, should have taken out the Lionesses of Cameroon easily.
“Qualifiers for major competitions in Women’s Football start in two months time including the African Women Championship, so how can any true lover of the game call for a-two-year break?
