Former Secretary General of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Chief Taiwo Ogunjobi has dismissed the ban handed him by the football federation.
A technical committee set up by the president of the NFF, Mallam Aminu Maigari, headed by Barrister Chris Green to look into the embattled chief scribe’s involvement in the transfer log jam of Flying Eagles striker, Olarenwaju Kayode, came up with a 10-year ban recommendation for the aforementioned from all football related activities.
The NFF has described as a “slave contract” a deal which Ogunjobi had helped the youth international secure, stressing that it had been a scheme to unduly enrich the coffers of the former Secretary General.
When quizzed by supersport.com, Ogunjobi retorted, saying: “The truth is I am just hearing this from you. No one from the NFF has informed me about any ban. When they officially communicate with me, I will say more.
“The NFF has no case and they know it. If they do let them prove their allegations.”
Meanwhile, the Barrister Green-led technical committee had stated unequivocally that the NFF was compelled to take stern action on the issue.
