NFF To Move From Glass House Next Week

Ambassador Chris Giwa has revealed that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will relocate to Dankaro House in Abuja next week.

The NFF President revealed that the national football body will move away from Glass House in a chat with reporters on Thursday while he was inspecting the facility.

In his words, Giwa said: “I have moved around and have seen that the place is good, so we have no choice but to move in from next week.”

“We cannot be blessed with a property like this and we allow it to be wasted. By the grace of God, we will begin to move into this place from next week.

“It is a good place and it is befitting.” He added.

Giwa further revealed that: “The renovation work will continue as the federation is moving in. In fact, the contractor for the job will begin work on Friday so as to ensure the facility is in good shape.’’

Dankaro House was built by the then Presidential Task Force (PTF) for the 2010 FIFA World Cup headed by former Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi and setup by then Vice-President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

The facility was commissioned in 2013 by the then Vice-President, Namadi Sambo.
