Galadima Wants Crisis In Sports Resolved


Former Chairman of Nigeria Football Association, Alhaji Ibrahim Galadima wants an  immediate resolution of the crisis rocking Nigerian sports.

All is not well with Nigerian sports lately with Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, still  battling with its disputed election, while the Nigeria Olympic Committee, NOC,  had its  recent elections cancelled by the International Olympic Committee, IOC.

Galadima said he was not happy with the latest development, especially in the NOC.

According to him, “it is high time the government, through the National Sports  Commission, NSC, finds a lasting solution to the problem in NOC. There was an election  which the IOC has ignored. I’m also not happy with what is happening at the NFF, where a  similar problem is ridiculing the image of the country and FIFA is watching.”

Meanwhile, Effiong Johnson, a member of the newly-elected board of the NFF swept away by  a Lagos High Court on 6 September wants Nigerians to hold the Director-General of the  National Sports Commission (NSC), Chief Patrick Ekeji responsible for the present impasse  in the federation.
