Animu Maigary, impeached president of NFF

Vanguard reports about Alhaji Aminu Maigari has been sacked as the Board members were not happy with the management style of president of the federation.

Announcing the decision of the board to newsmen shortly after the meeting, Adamu Muazu, who represents the North-West on the executive board, said Mr. Maigari was removed for “financial misappropriation and mal-administration”.

After thorough and exhaustive deliberations on the uncalled-for secrecy surrounding all financial dealings of the Federation and failure to call meeting of the Executive Committee for the past eight (8) months, during which so many weighty decisions on Nigeria football had been taken by a small cabal within the Board, the Executive Committee passed a vote of no confidence on the NFF President, Alhaji Aminu Maigari. In view of the above, the Committee approved the immediate dismissal of Alhaji Aminu Maigari, from the NFF Executive Committee on grounds of financial misappropriation, misapplication and maladministration.”

A new election into the executive committee of the NFF will be held on the 26th of August, and expressed the gratitude of the NFF to President Goodluck Jonathan for continuously funding the game of football in Nigeria. The First Vice President, Mike Umeh, is to act as the President of the NFF until the election in August.

Eight of the thirteen members of the executive committee of the board signed the impeachment motion, which kicked Aminu Maigari out of office. Among them are Shehu Adamu, Effiong Johnson, Ahmed Kawo, Dilichukwu Onyedima, Deji Tinubu, Felix Anyansi and Muazu Sulieman.

Air Force slammed Policemen

The incident which occurred at a yet to be identified venue showed some men of the Nigeria Air Force calling on officers of the Nigeria police to cease fire.

In the videos also, residents were seen running helter-skelter while soldiers used a megaphone to call for calm. “Stop shooting, the Air Force are here”, the soldiers could be heard screaming.

However, the policemen appeared reluctant in taking orders from the soldiers until one of them showed proof of his rank by pointing to the stars on his shoulder.

The soldier also warned that if they refuse to ceasefire, he would charge them and their headquarters for inciting violence.

The officer who spoke on behalf of the Air Force then commanded the policemen to move their van behind theirs so the Army would serve as a buffer between them and the crowd.
