A presidential candidate of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), in the 30th September 2022 election, Dr Chris Emeruwa, has said he is in the race for the top position in order to take the country’s football from “analogue to digital”.

He stated this at a debate in Abuja organised by the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN), FCT chapter.

Dr Emeruwa said football in Nigeria has been relegated to the back seat in Africa in all aspects.

He said, if elected as the NFF president, he would work with experts to train Football Association (FA) secretaries to embrace a computerized system of administration.

“If elected the president of NFF, I will change the entire football administration from analogue to computerized system,” he said.

He added that his administration would come up with a policy to check the involvement of officials of the federation in players’ management.

Dr Emeruwa also said he would put in place institutions that will outlive his administration in order to gain the confidence of would-be sponsors.

“There is a need to build strong institutions that will outlive every administration of the NFF.

“Sponsors will always consider the structures before thinking of putting money into the system,“ he added.

Emeruwa said also that no sponsor would invest in the sport without seeing the programme of the federation.

He further said Nigeria presently has a deficit of certified football coaches as none has been certified for a very long time.
