As the NFF elective congress beckons come 30th September, the ancient city of Benin in Edo State will be the  host of the  nation’s football gladiators to mark the beginning of a new era in Nigerian Football administration.   

    The NFF electoral committee has been up running for the past couple of weeks with screening and vetting exercise.  This  will also  bring an  end to  the Amaju Melvin Pinnick led NFF Executive Committee after eight years of piloting the affairs of football administration in the country. 

    On the other hand, it is also certain that a new NFF President is anticipated to emerge through a purely democratic process in line with  guidelines  stipulated by Caf and Fifa.  Now let’s delve into the main topic of discussion which is  on everyone’s lip, the forthcoming NFF elections slated to take place in Benin City, the capital of Edo State, South-South Nigeria. 

    According to the NFF electoral committee, eleven presidential aspirants have thrown their hats in the ring in a bid to replace outgoing President, Amaju Melvin Pinnick.

     Les we forget, football is an institution and administering it  is a hérculean task especially in a nation like ours.  For us to achieve this, we need a leader of attitude and character who can infuse fresh ideas into the and harmonise Nigerian Football. 

    These leadership qualities stated above simply  defines Alh. Ibrahim Musa Gusau, the representative of  37 FA Chairmen in the present NFF Executive Committee. Gusau is an astute technocrat who carved a niche for himself serving  as the Chairman of Chairmen under the Pinnick led NFF Executive Committee.

    The Zamfara FA Chairman also served as a member of CHAN organising committee in CAF and was recently appointed as a member CAF Youth Organizing Committee saddled with the responsibility of organising AFCON U17, U20 and U23. 

    Gusau’s rise to prominence is no surprise considering his track records. During his official declaration to vie for the exalted NFF position, Gusau made mention of priotizing the domestic leagues and age grade national teams as part of his efforts bring back the glory days of Nigerian football. It is also pertinent to know these areas he vowed to revitalise are the key components of our football system that is in dire need of attention.  

    His emergence as the NFF President will all but put to bed to the lingering crisis bedeviling Nigerian Football that stagnated the progress of the beautiful game in  our dear nation.
