A football body known as Nigeria Football Stakeholders have written to the Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare to cancel the upcoming nff election scheduled to be held on Thursday, 30th September.
The football group sent a letter that was signed by its Secretary-General, Doggo Johnbull last month, and was received by the Ministry on 11th September.
According to the body, it stated that the Amaju Pinnick-led administration has failed to discharge its duty based on the status quo of the Federation.
They further highlighted three “atrocities” claimed the Pinnick-led leadership have incurred in the last eight years.
From the letter, it wrote that:
1. Embezzlement and fraud committed by the Amaju Pinick led Board with various cases pending in EFCC and ICPC.
2. Refusal to various players unions and so many stakeholders along in the intended election.
3. Blatant refusal to adjust the statues to accommodate all intending stakeholders to come to the board.
In view of the above we asked that the election be stopped till such a time when all reforms are carried out.
Meanwhile, they challenged to disrupt the election gathering, which has been fixed for Benin, Edo State if the franchise goes as planned.
“Refusal to adhere to our warning will be met with very serious consequences, we will not hesitate to bomb and bring down the venue of the election and blood will flow.
Your agreement to the cancellation will save the lives that are supposed to be lost.”
