The board of Nigerian Football Association (NFA) led by Ibrahim Galadima has been dissolved.

The dissolution follows an Extra ordinary congress meeting of the board held in Abuja yesterday.

Meanwhile, a seven man electoral committee headed by Group Captain John Obakpolor (rtd) has been constituted to conduct election in the NFA board next year.

The secretary-general of the world football governing body, Mr Urls Linsi who represented Sepp Blatter, the FIFA president urged the Nigerian football family to work as a united force instead of fighting each other.

The Minister of Sports and Social Development, Mr Ballam Ka’oje declared the congress open.

Meanwhile the Federal Government says it will continue to regulate sporting activities in the country in line with its philosophy of accountability.

Mr Bala Ka’oje, the Sports Minister, said at the opening of the NFA Congress today in Abuja that although government allowed autonomy in sports, it would continue its regulatory role.

“The NFA administrators must accept the fact that the government of the day would continue to ensure that sports and football in particular, are ran in line with the philosophy of the transparency and accountability.”

Ka’oje said that government would not condone situations where sports administrators become irresponsible in their dealings in the guise of autonomy in sports.

He described the congress as historic, saying that it was the climax of the reconciliatory efforts aimed at ending the impasse at the Glass House.

“I salute the majority of the congress members who accepted to bury their hatched by convening this congress today,” Ka’oje said.

He said that the country had learned some good lessons from the prolonged impasse and had realised the importance of a team work in any endeavour.

Ka’oje urged them to be frank in their deliberations as they chart a new course for football development in the country.
