Maigairi wishes NFF well

By Ben Efe

Impeached president of the Nigeria Football Federation Aminu Maigari has resigned to fate and has gone into hibernation. Maigari, indicated yesterday that he has peace of mind after a tumultuous post Brazil 2014 World Cup had him battling against the wind. 

He refused to be drawn into any conversation about his ordeal, but managed to say that he wished those currently running the show at the NFF well.

“I don’t have anything to say about the impeachment. I can only wish Nigeria football well,” said Maigari.

He also declined comments on his fellow travelers like Chris Green and Emeka Inyama who pushed him off the cliff during the executive committee meeting that sacked him last Thursday.

“No no please don’t trick me into saying something. I have nothing to say for now,” Maigari responded with a flush of laughter when asked if he felt let down by his backers during his days at the NFF.

Maigari was impeached by eight votes to five of the 13-man Executive Committee as members reconvened to review Nigeria’s participation at the just concluded World Cup in Brazil.

“After thorough and exhaustive deliberations on the uncalled-for secrecy surrounding all financial dealings of the Federation and failure to call meeting of the Executive Committee for the past eight months, during which so many weighty decisions on Nigeria football had been taken by a small cabal within the Board, the Executive Committee passed a vote of no confidence on the NFF President, Aminu Maigari.”
