Chairman of the NFF Media and Publicity Committee, Chief Emeka Inyama on Thursday clarified that no standing committee of the Federation has been dissolved, reiterating that the affected committees were only to be re-constituted.
“We have read and heard in sections of the media that some committees have been dissolved. This is not so. They are only to be re-constituted.
“There is marked difference between immediate dissolution and imminent re-constitution. The communique of the NFF Executive Committee was unambiguous on this matter.
“We will appreciate very much if the media can stay within the circumference of what was said in the communique.”
