The World football governing body, FIFA, yesterday Thursday August 14th ordered the re-instatement of impeached Aminu Maigari as the president of the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF.
The directive, which was actually conveyed in an email which is signed by the Deputy Secretary General of FIFA, Markus Kattner and was sent to the NFF Secretary General Musa
Amadu, stated that the NFF leadership must remain as status quo prior to FIFA 2014 World cup in Brazil.
Maigari was removed from office on July 24th after a vote of no confidence was passed by some members of the NFF board. This will actually be the second time FIFA will be using its power to reinstate Maigari. With this new directive, Maigari and all his 13 board members earlier suspended will return to office until August 26th when a fresh election will be conducted
