The General Assembly of the Nigeria Football Federation has told the Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Barr. Solomon Dalung that it has done no wrong in its handling of the FIFA grant and development fund.

In a communique issued at the end of its Annual General Assembly in Lagos yesterday, the NFF passed a vote of confidence on its President, Amaju Pinnick, who it commended for his high sense of integrity.


“The Congress expressed satisfaction with the explanation provided by the Executive Committee on a number of issues raised by the Minister of Youth & Sports (Barr. Solomon Dalung) at the opening ceremony (division within the Board, FIFA Audit Query and late submission of memos), and submitted that the Minister was misinformed about the activities of the Board.

“Congress noted the submission of the Executive Committee that at no time previously (official or unofficially) did the Minister raise these issues with the NFF leadership to obtain clarification, which the Federation would have gladly provided, just as it did to the House Committee on Sports during a recent sitting on its budget performance and budget proposal.    Indeed, the audited account of the Federation for the year, as audited by PricewaterhouseCoopers, an internationally reputable audit firm, was presented and adopted at the General Assembly.
