Former NFF President says Oliseh’s resignation is unfortunate


By; Mohammed Kawu, Bauchi.
The former President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Alhaji Aminu Maigari has described the decision of the former Super Eagles Coach, Sunday Oliseh to resign as most unfortunate, especially at this crucial time when the country is playing its qualifying series.
Maigari was speaking to sports writers in Bauchi where he said the former super Eagles player resigned based on allegation of his unpaid salaries which, according to him, the NFF was said to have paid him.
He advocated for the engagement of a foreign Technical Adviser who would dedicate his time and experience on presenting a formidable and sound team, unlike some indigenous ones that engineered players to stage a protest for unnecessary demands.
The former NFF President urged Nigerians to always be patience with football administrators and players as the game of football is about winning and losing, hence the need for Nigerians to always pray for positive development for the country.
On the just concluded FIFA elections that saw to the emergence of Gianni Infantino as the new President, Maigari congratulated the new FIFA boss and urged him to sanitize the body as he promised to do especially on the issue of corruption and providing enabling environment for member countries to bring changes on football development.
He also commended Infantini for introducing the involvement of more women in the affairs of the Federation as well as the increase of participating countries in football competition and urged him to use his vast experience to restore the lost glory of the body.
