*If Dalung does not probe them we shall fight him
*Dikko to face new legal issues in 2017
Sports development in Nigeria has been a victim of momumental corruption and bad administration, the cabal that continually strangulates any development in the sector especially in the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and the illegal League Management Company (LMC) must be probed and brought to book immediately.
Architect Samson Idowu Ajakaiye, the spokesman of the Save Sports Nigeria (SSN) group said, “we commend the sports minister, Solomon Dalung, for the great but courageous speech he read at the opening ceremony of the NFF AGA in Lagos. This must be followed up.”
Ordinarily, the cabal led by Amaju Pinnick and Shehu Dikko has launched a serious tirade calling the minister all manners of names and running from one media house to the other, that should not deter justice. Justice in this matter is to investigate the two corrupt organisations before they kill our football.”
Architect Ajakaiye said, “if minister Dalung does not set up the structures to probe the two institutions immediately we sall mobilise Nigerians against him meaning he is just reading the Lagos speech to divert the nation’s attention from the real deal, which is the monumental corruption in the NFF.
He said it that $802,000 from Fifa development grant cannot be accounted for. Please ask PriceWaterhouseCooper where they got the pieces of paper that was paid for which they claimed was the Audit Report. Was any Audit done or they just manufactured some papers called Audit Report?
Those who know the inner working told this group that the NFF is not only moribund but has not been audited in the last 12 years now. So, we doubt the audit report so presented in the annual ceremony of rubber stamp agents that gathered in Lagos as the NFF Congress.
Architect Ajakaiye submitted that the new names of the two organisations in view of their new corruption colouration are Nigerian Fraternity of Fraudsters (NFF) and the League Managers of Corruption (LMC).
By tomorrow, we shall bring forth details of the monumental corruption in the so-called cash cow called LMC. We have all the details of how clubs are schemed out, how the nation is deceived that her league is progressing whereas it is actually regressing.
Has Mr Shehu Dikko cleared himself from the Police report prepared on him during the NFF election in Warri? He was also convicted by a Jos High Court. So, morally speaking he cannot be saddled with the task of managing the league.
We will be approaching a Lagos court early in the year to seek for injunction that he must clear himself of these legal bottlenecks before he can manage a position of responsibility like the league.
