The Chairman of Task Force of Professional Footballers Association of Nigeria (PFAN), Harrison Jalla has stated unequivocally that the Amaju Pinnick led board tenure ends on 20th September, 2022 and should vacate the office immediately, BSNSports.com.ng can report.
Jalla made this known in an Article made available to BSN Sports which reads in parts; “The failed NFF Board Class of 2014-2022 will officially vacate office midnight Tuesday, September 20, 2022, for a new order.
As this failed Board vacates office, the process of ushering a new order takes immediate effect.
He addded, “Those expecting a predetermined election, where those who destroyed our football in the last eight years will reproduce themselves, are living in fools’ paradise. That will never happen again. All hands must be on deck moving forward to follow the advice of the sitting Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR) for a new order of an inclusive Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
“This is the second time in the history of Nigeria Football a sitting president would come out openly to advice on way forward for Nigeria Football.
Former President Goodluck Jonathan did same in 2010 after Nigeria’s dismal performance in the South Africa 2010 World Cup. Any member of the out-going NFF Board parading himself from 21st of September 2022 is taking a risk.
“The so-called 10-day extension offered the out-going NFF Board by the Lagos NFF AGA is a Greek gift and ULTRA VIRES. It has no place in our rule books as the Congress has no powers to extend the life of any elected Board.
“There is no alternative to fixing and rebuilding Nigeria Football at the moment. This is a plunge we must take now as a nation. An inclusive election can come after addressing all issues stagnating our Football.
“Enough of visionless leaders in Nigeria Football.”
