According to PromptNews, Maigari submitted his resignation letter to the General Secretary, Musa Amadu, on Tuesday.
The embattled NFF boss, it was gathered had lobbied at the highest level of government to ensure that he quits the scene gracefully and not disgraced.
On Monday, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Anyim Pius Anyim, had convened a meeting during which a proposal was put on the table that the Board should allow Maigari to resign effective from August 26, 2014 after the election into the Executive Committee.
The proposal was however rejected by the Mike Umeh-led Board, proposing rather that Maigari should back-date his resignation to early July.
The erstwhile NFF President had been impeached by eight of the 13-member Executive Committee over allegations bothering on financial secrecy, misappropriation and maladministration.
With this development, rather than seeking approval for his impeachment, the executive committee will present his resignation letter before the General Assembly on August 26, 2014 for ratification.
