As regards NFF, the Brekete Family Talk Magazine and Reality Program hosted a former international footballer, Taribo West who after retirement got a call into ministry and is currently a Pastor.
Also, the former President of NFF, Sani Lulu Abdullahi was present to clear the air and tell the world his side of the story. Pastor Taribo West commended the management of Human Rights Radio and the Brekete Family at large.
He stated that football is a uniting force that defies ethnicity difference; it is in football that you see people of different profession coming together to achieve a single aim.
He promised to do his findings and return to share whatever he discovers. He attested that NFF is an abode of corruption and that can be seen from the fact that ex-international footballers are not reckoned with anymore.
Tunde Aderibigbe added that his contact in Aljazeera informed him that Amaju Pinnick had bought the story off in order for the media house to be silent about it. Etuk Bassey who works for Aljazeera disclosed this to him and since then has cut communication with Tunde Aderibigbe.
Alhaji Sani Lulu Abdullahi expressed his gratitude to God and for the privilege to be live on the program. He was the last NFA chairman and the first NFF President. He corrected a ‘wrong’ impression as regards NFF’s change of name.
According to him, the change of name from NFA to NFF was as a result of a request by FIFA. He explained that NFA operated under Decree 101 which was in turn not favorable to the operations of FIFA.
And in a bid to be able to work alongside FIFA, there was a need to adopt the statutes of FIFA and that would not be achievable with NFA so there was a need to change the name. It was approved in 2006 in Port Harcourt and has been operative since then.
As president of NFF, he listed his achievements and said being a footballer helped him to see through the eyes of those he was serving and he was able to achieve his mandate.
At the time he assumed duties as President of NFF in 2006, the organization had incurred a debt of about N300 Million but at the end of his tenure, he helped in clearing the debt, delivered his full mandate and left 2.8 Billion Naira in the NFF account.
