The NFF plans to wade into the controversy surrounding the Africa Cup of Nations hero as the two NPL clubs have laid claims to his signature
Nigeria Football Federation President Aminu maigari has set up a committee to investigate the ownership tussle over Super Eagles midfielder Sunday Mba, with both Warri Wolves and Rangers International claiming the player as theirs.
The two clubs have threatened to do anything to lay claim to the player while the player has also disclosed that he has the last say in the matter because he could chose where he wants to go.
But the NFF top gun has vowed to resolve the issue well on time before it degenerates. As a result he told Goal.com that he was going to inaugurate a committee that would help unravel the mystery of the real owner of the player well on time not to affect the player’s future in the game.
Maigari told Goal.com shortly after declaring open the first ever Nigeria Nation-Wide League Congress held in Abuja.
“Actually I just set up a committee on this issue. I have also called the attention of Nigeria Premier League Board that is also part of the whole process to advise us and tell us the true position of the matter. So the committee has just been set up today and will commence work tomorrow. As soon as I leave you know I am going to inaugurate the committee,” he disclosed.
The NFF President also assured on the Super Eagles’ next assignment, a 2014 World Cup qualifying match against visiting Harambee Stars of Kenya.
“We are currently leading the chart in our group and the Football Federation will leave no stone unturned to ensure that the Eagles qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. We have mapped out strategies to get the positive result we need in the match against Kenya. Insha Allah we will win the match in Calabar,” Maigari promised.
