Some youth under the aegis of Edo Progressive Youth Forum (EPYF), has threatened to stop the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), from conducting its election slated for September 30 in Benin City, Edo State.
A statement signed by the spokesman of EPYF, Comrade Oseni Odia on Thursday, said that the group’s decision is connected to the maltreatment meted on one of Edo illustrious son, Mr. Mike Oboh (now late) by the second Vice President of the NFF, Malam Shehu Dikko.
“It will interest the general public to know that our son, Mr. Mike Oboh worked for the League Management Company (LMC) for two years as a Match Delegate without pay. We pleaded with the Chairman of LMC who doubles as the second Vice President of NFF, when our son fell sick and we got no concrete answer from him. His colleagues in Abuja, pleaded with Malam Dikko to pay our son’s two years indemnity to help cushion his medical bills, with no positive response, untill Mr. Oboh died on August 4, 2022”, the statement reads.
“We were dumbfounded when we read that the NFF has planned to conduct their election in our state, after all the evil done to our son, this we will resist, until all the entitlement of Mr. Oboh is fully given to his next of kin”, the statement concludes.
