The federation has denied insinuations that it is denying other board members of the opportunity to make input in its running of football in the country

The Nigeria Football Federation has responded to allegations against its top officials of running the organisation unilaterally.

Leye Adepoju and Effiong Johnson claimed that the decisions of the board are being made by the president Aminu Maigari and technical committee chair Chris Green without carrying along other members of the board who get to learn of decisions through the meddia.

In a reaction to the story, NFF head of media committee Emeka Inyama denied the allegations.

“There is no truth in that statement. There has never been any time such things happened. The (NFF) is one and we will continue to be one. That is one big factor that has made the Board to achieve what we have been achieving so far,” Inyama told

On Tuesday, the NFF released a list of its achievements since 2012. “It has been fabulous showing here and there for Nigeria [sic] football in the past 16 months, and critics must give that to this administration. The records are there for all to see. In fact, Nigeria is the only African country to qualify to represent the continent at all major championships since the beginning of 2012.

“Just look at the records: Nigeria represented Africa at the 2012 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Japan; represented Africa at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Azerbaijan; will represent Africa at the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup; will represent Africa at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Turkey and will also represent Africa at the FIFA U-17 World Cup in United Arab Emirates,” the release stated.
