Forum Chairman accuses Gusau's led NFF of conducting fraudulent FA election in Kogi

The Kogi State Chairman, Football Association of Local Councils Forum Abbas Mamud, has accused the President, Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Alhaji Musa Gusau of conducting a fraudulent Football Association election in Kogi State.


It could be recalled that, one Hassan Wada was newly elected as Chairman of Kogi Football Association.


Expressing his dissatisfaction on the exercise, the forum Chairman, in a statement on Friday accused the NFF President of dissolving the democratically elected Kogi State Local Council of FA whose tenure is expected to expire in 2025, alleging that, he did that because of his pecuniary motives.

Our Kogi State Correspondent, reports that Mamud said, "The man dies in all who keeps silent in the face of tyranny. This is a statement credited to Prof Wole Soyinka in his book. In support of the quotation above ,members of Nigeria Football Association in Kogi State are being oppressed by the undemocratic actions of Alh Musa Gudau's leadership of the association.


"Gusau illegally brought in a new Local Council to replace the one he dissolved. Against this background, the elected Local Council wrote a petition to Kogi State House of Assembly that the dissolved Local Concil still had two years in office.

The petition was referred to House Committee on Sports .


"After deliberation on the matter ,the House Committee directed the parties concerned to maintain status quo until it has carried out investigations and written a report on the matter"


According to him, contrary to House Committee on Sports directives, Gusau put in place a lopsided election/ normalisation committee that turned out to undemocratically impose Hassan Wada on the Local Committee as an unopposed Chairman.


The statement reads in part"With this development, members of Kogi Central of the Local Council of FA wrote a petition on the lopsidedness of the normalisation committee. According to the petition, the Normalization Committee has four representatives from Kogi East instead of only two, none from Kogi Central and two from Kogi West .


"Ordinarily, the petition explained further, there should have been two representatives each from each of the senatorial district. The series of petitions are yet to come to an end as Allay-Dey also wrote to express his displeasure at the latest development in the Gusau's one man running of affairs of FA in Kogi State.



"We are saying NO to the illegalities of Alh Musa Gusau in Kogi State Local Council of Nigeria Football Association".


He maintained that, Nigeria has gone past the era of military junta when things were done without democratic principles.
