The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) yesterday announced that it has entered into a partnership agreement with Tingo for the country’s oldest football championship, known presently as Federation Cup.

However, the NFF was silent on important details as it neither disclosed the amount involved nor the duration of the partnership with Tingo.

President of the NFF, Alhaji Ibrahim Musa Gusau, declared that the first partnership agreement in the life of the new NFF administration had taken some months to seal because his team places more premium on integrity and credibility of partnerships and relationships than the number of such relationships.

“We took our time to conduct due diligence on the company and we found them to be upright and credible. For us, it is about credibility and integrity. A number of corporates have approached us for partnerships but we are taking our time to evaluate things.

Chief Operating Officer of Tingo, Mr. Peter Owokolo commended the NFF for the opportunity given to the company to engage Nigeria Football at such a high level, and promised to explore areas of further positive contributions to the Nigeria game.

“We are honoured to be here and to be able to take the title sponsorship of such a prestigious competition as the Federation Cup. It is a privilege. We are committed to promoting and positively projecting Nigeria Football in every way we can,” said the statement from the NFF.
