The congress of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has dissolved the Aminu Maigari-led executive board.
During a meeting of the congress held in Abuja on Saturday, members accused the Maigari-led board of secrecy in the finances of the federation, as well as manipulation of the NFF statutes to suit his interest.
The congress further endorsed the appointment of Mr Lawrence Katken as the acting Secretary-General of the federation.
Members of the congress also reconstituted the NFF Electoral Committee and the NFF Appeals Committee to prepare ground for election into the NFF Executive Board.
The extra-ordinary congress summoned by the chairman of the Nigeria Football Associations, Effiong Johnson, to discuss recent developments around Nigeria football, was attended by delegates from the football associations of the 36 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory.
The chairman of the communique drafting committee, Obinna Ogba, who announced the decisions of the congress, said the extra-ordinary congress unanimously endorsed the dissolution of the Aminu Maigari-led NFF Executive Committee, and immediate termination of the employment of all management staff.
A Plateau court had on Thursday sacked Mr Maigari after hearing a suit filed by Mrs Ebiakpo Rumson Baribote, the Chairman of Nembe City FC, who requested the court to restrain Aminu Maigari and all the committee and congress of the Nigeria Football Federation from managing the affairs of football matters in Nigeria.
Hon. Justice P. L Lot of the Plateau State High Court sitting in Jos granted the Order of Interlocutory Injunction restraining the president of the NFF, the executive committee members as well as the NFF Congress from running affairs of Nigerian football pending the determination of the Motion on Notice before the court.
