|Troubled NFF President...Aminu Maigari|
The men of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has swooped on the offices of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) since Friday last week.
Sources told www.gongnews.net that the investigators immediately took over the Accounts department of the Federation and are still working there asking questions about certain operations including the alleged N1million tip given to each of the four Federal Auditors.
The four Federal Auditors who were working on the accounts of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) were alledged to have each gotten a tip of N1million which dampened the morale of the workers.
This is the first time in 13 years that the accounts of the body either when it was Nigeria Football Association or its current illegal status that auditors are having a peep into their account books.
The initial jubilation that greeted the arrival of the auditors turned sour with staffers of the Glass House alleging that members of the Board of the NFF delivered one million Naira tips to each of the auditors.
However, there is a mallam who owns a bureau de change who is being owed N160m by the NFF and has been begging for part of the monies owed him to be settled. He is the one who changes their world cup $8m booty to Naira. The World cup money is part of the issues the EFCC men are after.
It will be recalled that the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) has been docked in the controversy of an audit report that detailed the high quality of fraud therein leading to the Congress of the NPL having to sack the entire Board.
