Nigerians have condemned the vote of confidence passed on the Alhaji Aminu Maigari-led board by the delegates to the Annual General Meeting, AGM, of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, held in Kaduna yesterday.
In the opinion of some Nigerians the board failed to live up to expectations in the outgoing year, hence Maigariâ€™s NFF deserved no pet on the back.
They strongly condemned the plaudits for the board, saying the action would drag the nationâ€™s football further down in the New Year.
Former vice president of the NFF, Lumumba Adeh, said 2011 was a bad year for the nationâ€™s football, adding that nothing has changed since Maigari took over.
â€œIâ€™m sure the state of Nigerian football may worsen next year, because there is nothing on ground to show that these people are serious at all, yet the delegates at the AGM saw nothing wrong with the system,â€
Former chairman of Nigeria Premier League, NPL board, Oyuiki Obaseki, described action of the delegates as unfair to the followers of football in the country, adding that 2011 remains the worst year for football in Nigeria.
