Save Nigerian football from Maigari, Lulu begs GEJ

*He squandered N2.8b in one year!
Former President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Sani Abdullahi Lulu has released a bombshell revealing so many issues and details amongst which is the fact that the present board led by Alhaji Aminu Maigari squandered N2.8b in one year outside the N3.012b from the Appropriation account by government.
NFF Scribe,Musa Amadu. Where is the N2.8b?
Lulu in a letter he wrote to the nation’s President, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, revealed that “it is very imperative for me to note at this stage that despite all the allegations against us, we left in our accounts a record total of N2.8b.”
According to him, “cash of N320m and $700,000 were in the NFF accounts in UBA and Afribank. FIFA’s sponsorship money of $5.5m was lodged in the LOC account in First Bank. $1m for FAP project and $400,000 for FIFA Goal Project was set aside in FIFA account in Zurich preparatory to its utilisation for the construction of NFF headquarters.”
Lulu, who was impeached alongside three other personalities: Mr. Amanze Uchegbulam and Mr. Taiwo Ogunjobi alongside the former Secretary General, Dr. Bolaji Ojo-Oba are standing trial in a prosecution conducted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
He added that a “total gross revenue of $8m allocated to the NFF for the participation of Nigeria in the World Cup” is also there to be accounted for. He wrote: “the amount was being credited by FIFA to NFF at the time of our impeachment was contrived.”

NB: Watch out on this page for Dr. Ekeji’s role, ‘we are cleaner than Maigari’s board’ and further in-depth revelations in the letter.
