Former Super Eagles goalkeeper Joseph Dosu has called for a lasting solution to the crisis troubling the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
The Atlanta’96 gold medallist was speaking in the wake of FIFA’s decision not to ban Nigeria after its conditions were met.
The international football body had earlier threatened to ban the country from all football-related activities if the legitimate Amaju Pinnick-led NFF board was not restored back to the Glass House.
The incumbent NFF board and the Chris Giwa-led faction have been in a leadership tussle since they both emerged from two separate elections in 2014.
In his words via soccernet.ng, Dosu said: “I am so delighted that we did the right thing to avoid FIFA ban considering the fact that their decision would have affected Nigeria’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Seychelles on September 7.”
“The growth of our football must be considered first and not the other way round. It is high time we solve this issue of leadership crisis in the country in order for our football to move forward.
“Now that Amaju Pinnick has been recognised as the authentic President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), we don’t want this crisis to bring out its ugly head again.” He concluded.
