Goodluck Jonathan has incurred the wrath of FIFA
As expected the Nigerian Football Federation and therefore all their teams, not just the Super Eagles stands on the brink of being suspended.
The ultimatum was given in response to Goodluck Jonathan, the Nigerian president’s decision to suspend the Super Eagles from international participation in order to “rebuild the team.”
FIFA communications director Nicolas Maingot told a media briefing: “FIFA have sent a letter to the Nigeria Football Federation indicating that the government of Nigeria has until Monday at 6pm to cancel its direction to withdraw Nigeria’s participation from all FIFA and CAF competitions for the next two years.”
He added: “Failure to do so will lead to the suspension of the NFF.”
Why Jonathan Goodluck’s decision, bizarre and arbitrary: is also reactionary and counterproductive >>
