Operatives of the Department of the State Security Service on Wednesday vacated the premises of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) following the sack of its Director-General Lawal Musa Daura.
A high ranking official at the federation who pleaded not to be mentioned , said they were surprised to see them drive out without a word.
‘Well we thank God because we hardly work , once is 4 p.m they will ask us close and leave the premises.”
The members of the Giwa led-board were seen at the board room of the federation.
Sports Minister Solomon Dalung had earlier assured that the DSS will vacate the glasshouse this week to enable the right person legally recognized by law take charge of the activities of the federation even though he strongly believed that the Abdulmuminu Aminu led committee will find a lasting solution to the crisis.
” This administration is a government based on the rule of law and I will not allow any person who has no respect for Supreme court judgement to turn my parastatal under my watch.
The invasion of the NFF by the DSS was unacceptable and security stretched too far. But I am happy that normalcy has returned to the glasshouse for now”. said the Minister.
Dalung who traveled to France ahead of Thursday’s FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup second group D clash involving Nigeria and Haiti ecpressed confidence that the Falconets will qualify from the group.
“Don’t judge the team with their game against Germany. Falconets have a history in this competition and I know they will make it to the final.
