NFF Suspends ExCo Members Chris Green and Yusuf Ahmed

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has suspended two of their members, after an Executive Committee (ExCo) meeting in Abuja on Thursday morning.

ExCo members Chris Green and Yusuf Ahmed have been handed six months and a year suspension for anti-board activities, while a third person Yahaya-Kwande awaits probe.

Ahmed was found culpable for what the NFF body described as: “glaring anti-board activities, including facilitating and participating in an unauthorised gathering in Abuja, as well as case of forgery to unilaterally alter the decision of the Executive Committee on tenure of management staff.”

Green is suspended for giving media interviews that portrayed the NFF and Nigeria football in bad light.

The case against Yahaya-Kwande is set for thorough investigation.

The bans are to be ratified by the general assembly.

Meanwhile, Fifa has asked the football family to provide it with full details leading to the impeachment of embattled NFF president Aminu Maigari.

A congress earlier scheduled to rectify Maigari’s dismissal was aborted, siting “unforeseen circumstances”.


  1. FIFA is really a busy body and do gooder, drinking paracetamol for other people’s headache. Why can’t they wait for matter to be ripe for hearing and be brought to them in due time? No. They are doing roaring business. The whole world is being fed with football opium by a body against which very severe corruption allegations have been levied. Fools In Football Arena.
