Sports Sports minister believes NFF crisis is an 'internal affair'

Nigeria's Sports Minister Tamuno Danagogo has attributed the ongoing conflicts rocking the Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) as an "internal affair".

There has been controversies since last month in the build-up to the NFF General elections,with the outgoing president,Aminu Maigari arrested and detained for over 24hours before he was released on Wednesday.

Tuesday's congress saw the emergence of Chris Giwa as a factional leader but not without a whimper,as many people distanced themselves from the said elections.

The minister said that they are working on resolving the conflicts:“at the appropriate time we will say something about it in order for our football to move forward,” Danagogo said.

“Already I have started calling the parties involved in the dispute to know their grievances and find a way out of the crisis because it is not healthy for the development of our football.”
