The President of football governing body Sepp Blatter FIFA has warned that Nigeria is at risk of getting an international ban due to direct government interference with the country’s football. This came up after a court sacked the football federation’s executive committee.
Nigerian sports minister Tammy Danagogo yesterday appointed Mr Lawrence Katiken as administratof of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
Danagogo acted after a high court sitting in Plateau State granted an injunction stopping elected NFF president Aminu Maigari, his executive committee and the NFF congress from office, which implys a direct interference by government in football, which is against FIFA’s regulations.
