FIFA LIFTS BAN ON NIGERIA!



A few weeks back, Football governing body, FIFA, placed a ban on Nigeria that will ensure a zero participation in all FIFA organised games both male and female. The ban was as a result of a high court ruling in Jos which led to the sack of the NFF president, Maigari and other board officials. A seemingly political intervention which out rightly contravened FIFA policy, hence, a ban. FIFA however directed that a new court order reinstating Maigari and other board members be obtained before the ban can be lifted.

The ban was lifted today after a new court order reinstating the NFF president and his colleagues. This therefore clears every uncertainties about the women U-20 missing the world cup in Canada next month.
