The appeals committee of the FCT FA Elections on Tuesday upheld the elections of Abbah Mouktar Mohammed as the duly elected chairman of the FCT FA.
Mohammed had on Thursday last week in Kuje,Abuja defeated the incumbent Chairman,Musa Talle 11 to 4 votes,not satisfied with the result Talle went on appeal.
“The winner of the election who also has been the 2nd vice chairman before the election is also an intermediary between FIFA and NFF has not resigned same before the election,” Talle’s appeal reads.
However,the Appeal Committee headed by Agbolade Dokunmu Madoks ruled that the petition that Mouktar Mohammed was also a players’ intermediary lacked merit as the appellant failed to provide any evidence to that effect.
“Mr Abba M. Mohammed has been cleared of all allegations before us based on the evidences before us and we therefore dismiss all appeals against the elction of Mohammed Abba Muktar as the duly elected chairman of FCT FA and declare him duly elected,” read part of the statement signed by all three members of the appeals committee.
There were strong indications that the appeals committee headed by Dokunmu Madoks with Omeiza Suleiman as secretary and Chief Michah Gora as member were been pressured to favour the defeated chairman,whom some top chieftain of the NFF and top officials of the FCT Sports Council are comfortable with.
With the affirmation of Mouktar Mohammed as the duly elected chairman of the FCT FA, as no doubt unsettled the political dynamic of the North Central Zone in the Board of the Nigeria Football Federation.
