The members of the board of the Nigeria Football Federation have impeached the President of the federation Alhaji Aminu Maigari. The former president was accused wrong financial dealings and maladministration.The decision was taken at an Executive
Committee meeting of the federation
which was held on Thursday in Abuja. The
First Vice-president, Mike Umeh was
mandated to act as president pending
new elections on August 26, 2014.
The meeting which had all 13 members
including Maigari in attendance also
agreed to open up negotiation leading to
contract renewal for Nigeria coach
Stephen Keshi.

The decisions of the members were communicated through two separate communiqués signed by the finance committee chairman Alhaji Muazu Suleyman and media committee chairman Emeka Inyama.

The first statement read in part, “…After
thorough and exhaustive deliberations on
the uncalled-for secrecy surrounding all
financial dealings of the Federation and
failure to call meeting of the Executive
Committee for the past eight (8) months,
during which so many weighty decisions
on Nigeria football had been taken by a
small cabal within the Board, the
Executive Committee passed a vote of no
confidence on the NFF President, Alhaji
Aminu Maigari.
