Former Katsina State director of sports, Alhaji Aliyu Kofar-Soro has said the president of the Nigeria Football Federation Amaju Pinnick’s ineptitude has wrecked Nigerian football so Nigerians should rise up to save what is left of the sport.
Speaking to Daily Trust on Saturday, the sports administrator said since the former Executive Chairman of Delta State Sports Commission and his colleagues took over the NFF, Nigerian football has not been the same.
He, therefore said if something urgent is not done to kick out Pinnick and his co-travellers in the present NFF Executive Committee, what is left of Nigerian football would be destroyed completely.
 “The time has come for every well meaning Nigerian, especially genuine football stakeholders to unite to end this show of shame by Pinnick and his board members.
“We all know that morally, they are not fit to occupy their positions and as long as they are there, nothing good will come the way of Nigerian football.
“God does not support injustice. Unless they leave that office, Nigerian football will not survive. It is our collective responsibility to chase them out of the glasshouse, if they refuse to resign honourably,” he said.
Kofar-Soro also said the constant wrangling between the present NFF and its coaches is another act of irresponsibility which should not be condoned by anyone.
He said a transparently honest board would not engage its coaches in bickering over issues bothering on money.
“Take a look at the persistent altercation between the NFF and the coaches. This goes to show these are men who hardly keep their words.
“They had series of money issues with Sunday Oliseh and he was forced to quit. At the moment, they are battling Samson Siasia instead of working towards qualifying Nigeria for the 2018 World Cup,” he noted.
