FIFA Will Lift Ban On Nigeria ‘very soon’—NFA

A member of  the Nigeria Football Association (NFA), Mr Joe Amene, on Tuesday assured Nigerians that the ban slammed on Nigeria by FIFA would soon be lifted.

He gave the assurance in an interview in Onitsha.
Amene said that the country had gone through similar situations twice in the past, adding that the previous situations were settled in the best interest of the country.

“There must be a solution and I am sure the concerned authorities are addressing the issues accordingly.

“We must also appreciate the fact that  Nigeria, as a sovereign country, also has her own laws.

“The issues bothering FIFA as they concern the federation will be sorted out.

“This is not the first time it had happened; it is not the second time. So, I believe that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

“I can assure you that in the next 48 hours, we would begin to see the light of this current impasse.
“It is not coming to stay, whatever reason it is.

“But, then, for every other right thinking person; I have a feeling that if you are talking about the case in court, I am sure it would be withdrawn.

“If you are talking about the other situations, I am sure we also have solutions to the situations and at the end of the day, Nigeria will come out top.’’
