President of Nigeria Football Federation, Alhaji Ibrahim Musa Gusau on Tuesday finally inaugurated the recently-constituted Technical Committee of NFF in Abuja and charged the members to brace up for the tedious responsibilities ahead with preparing fresh technical crews for most of the National Teams and making headways for the teams.
“Let me assure you that you have been carefully selected based on your track records and what we know you can contribute to this assignment. It will not be an easy assignment, as most of the National Teams have concluded one competition or the other and are now preparing for fresh tasks.
“That raises the need to compose new technical crews and provide guidance and vision to the crews. The Super Falcons are back from the FIFA Women’s World Cup with aplomb, but we must remember that they have the 2024 Olympics and 2024 Women AFCON qualifying matches shortly and start to prepare for those games. The home-based professionals have qualifiers for the CHAN and the male and female U17 and U20 teams have qualification matches of high importance in a few months to come”, Gusau said.
Gusau, however, also assured the support of NFF to the committee in carrying out its work, while noting that meetings would be either physical or by video conference.
The Chairman of the committee, Alhaji Sharif Rabiu Inuwa, meanwhile, posited that the committee will discharge its duties with every sense of responsibility and be directed by the insights of the Gusau-led administration to proactively and energetically work to ensure the success and development of the game of football in Nigeria.
The committee has as Vice Chairman the NFF 1st Vice President, Chief Felix Anyansi-Agwu, while Dr. Felix Owolabi Akinloye, Hon. Aminu Balele Kurfi, Mallam Zanna Mohammed Mala, Mr. Victor Ikpeba and Mr. Olayinka Olagbemiro are members with the Federation’s Technical Director, Coach Augustine Eguavoen as the secretary.
The Chairman of the Nigeria Nation-Wide League One, Hon. Silas Agara; NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi; immediate past NFF General Secretary, Barr. Musa Amadu; NFF Director of Communications, Ademola Olajire; CEO of the Nigeria National League, Mr. Emmanuel Attah; Assistant Directors Abdulrafiu Yusuf and Faith Ben-Anuge; Member of NFF Marketing Committee, Ibrahim Danbatta and; special assistant to NFF President, Abubakar Barde were also in attendance at the event.
