Edewor declares NFF presidential ambition
Former Chairman of the defunct Concord FC of Abeokuta, Mohammed Edewor yesterday declared his ambition to lead the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) in the coming election.
Edewor told journalists at the Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS) in Lagos yesterday that the current administration led by Amaju Pinnick had not done enough to place Nigerian football where it supposed to be, adding that he would run football that will be beneficial to Nigerians.
While some Nigerians believe the Pinnick-led NFF had done much for the nation’s football, particularly in the area of private sponsorship, some are pushing for him to continue in office beyond 2019 considering the smooth way the Super Eagles qualified for the World Cup in Russia.
