Yusuf Demands Explanation

As the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) election holds today in Benin City, Edo State, one of the presidential aspirants, Paul Yusuf, from Plateau State (North Central Zone) has demanded an explanation from the NFF electoral committee over his disqualification from the electoral process.

The NFF electoral committee was reported to have disqualified Paul Yusuf for what they called invalid nomination from his constituent Football Association (Plateau State FA).

Speaking to sports journalists at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City, the aggrieved aspirant and Canadia-based Ex-International, said he was surprised that his name was excluded from the cleared list of aspirants without any correspondence from the NFF electoral committee decision.

He said he is in Benin City for the NFF election and that his name is not on the cleared candidate list and that if he is disqualified, the reason for it should be made known to him and added that nobody in the NFF electoral committee has called to tell him why he was disqualified and that he need an explanation.

The former goalkeeper of Bendel Insurance FC, El-Kanemi Warriors, Enyimba FC and Rangers International vowed to drag the Aikhunegbe Anthony Malik led NFF electoral Committee to any length to seek redress.
