“I have already been assured that when I become the NFF president, our football will be live on TV, that is sponsorship and that is money for Nigeria Football,” Peterside Idah said.

“No one is sponsoring. Football is my passion and that is what is sponsoring me.

“I want to assure the FA chairmen that there will be proper funding of football activities at the grassroot. Grassroot football is key. FA Chairmen needs money to administer football at the grassroot.

“When any candidate gives you money, take it. It is your money they kept away from you, but when you want to vote, please vote for me.

“We just signed a renewed NIKE contract for four years, but no Nigerian knows the amount of the money for the four years. The financial value details of sponsorship deals should be made known for accountability and transparency.

“I am a man of honour, a man of integrity. With all humility, I know that I can’t do it alone. 

“I will bring money to Nigeria football. Impeach me if I don’t bring money to develop our football. The FA chairmen have been cheated for years. There is so much to enjoy in our football 

“Clubsides will be getting financial grants  to run their activities. We will find new avenues to attract proper funding of our football with accountability and trust.

As someone who played football and represented Nigeria, Idah lamented the poor welfare of Nigerian players, noting that if players decides to go on strike, there will be no football again.

“We will look after the players. If Nigerian footballers decide to go on strike like ASUU, Nigerian football administrators will be helpless and jobless.

“Nigeria football needs surgery, our problem in football must be fixed. and I can help fix the problem, please vote for me,” he concluded.
