Sports Musa Amadu's letter prevented Nigeria from being banned by FIFA

General Secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation(NFF)Musa Amadu yesterday wrote to the world football governing body,FIFA intimating them that normalcy has been restored.

FIFA gave Nigeria a Monday ultimatum for Chris Giwa to stop laying claims to the NFF presidency,which if he didn't adhere to could have resulted in a ban.

Nigeria avoided the ban when Giwa stepped aside,and Amadu who returned to the NFF secretariat on Monday duly communicated to FIFA and CAF in order to avoid any sanctions.

“I can confirm to you that I did write a letter just now to FIFA which I copied CAF informing them about the event of today," Amadu told Journalists on Monday.

“The development is in line with FIFA directives that we be allowed to come to the secretariat and do our work unhindered.

“Also those persons claiming to be elected did not come to the office just to allow us to do our work and I think at the end of the day reason has prevailed.

“This is because the crisis is inimical to the development of football for a big country like Nigeria which is a powerhouse in African football.

“I believe that the event of today(Monday) will be cemented and peace will return to the Nigeria football,’’ Amadu said.
