Sports Nigeria: There is More Money in Football Than in the oil Sector - Sports Minister



Nigeria's Sports Minister Solomon Dalung has stated that the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, is in crisis because there is more money in football than in the country's oil sector.

“There’s more cash in football than in the oil sector and there is so much selfish interests and as a result we have this crisis,” he said on a Radio interview in Kano. “There is someone who wants to force his way as the NFF president and that is why I have had to order full police presence at the NFF secretariat, if not work will not be going on there.”

The NFF has been enmeshed in a leadership tussle for the past two years, after elections into the executive committee.
