Sources say the Ministry wants transparency and fairness as the Annual General Assembly(AGA) holds in Lagos on Thursday, August 18, 2022.
The Annual General Assembly (congress) of the NFF had been on hold since December 2021 owing to an interim court order which has now been vacated.
Top Sports Ministry directors say the congress should act with the interest of the nation at heart and an overriding desire for the growth and development of the game.
“The congress of the Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) is its highest decision making body. The Ministry is challenging them to act with national interest and an overriding desire for the growth and development of the beautiful game.
“As the supervisory Ministry, all we want is transparency and fairness. Let them show maturity and give an ear to all issues, with a view to resolving all the differences, so there will be no basis for bitterness or rancour during the elections.
“The Ministry has no stake in who emerges, or who doesn’t at the end of the process and all Ministry staff have been told to steer clear of the politics,” the Ministry officials said.
