NFF scribe says he should be punished if found guilty of forging FIFA letter
By Richard Jideaka, Abuja:
General Secretary of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Musa Amadu has challenged the Nigeria Police to prosecute him if they found out that he forged the FIFA letter which accepted the ‘majority’ report of the NFF Elections Appeal Committee which upheld the validity of the NFF Executive Committee Election held in Warri on September 30.
FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valke had in a letter on Tuesday overturned the minority position of the Chairman of the NFF Elections Appeal Committee, Okechukwu Ajunwa, who pronounced that the elections contradicted NFF Electoral Code and NFF Statutes, therefore opposing the stand of other members.
Amadu said he was hurt by allegations in the media that he was the one behind the letter, adding that the allegation was a criminal one as it amounted to forgery.
“Anybody that makes such allegation has to come with a proof because forgery is a criminal offence. I am not manufacturing FIFA Letter or forging Jerome Valke’s signature. I challenge whoever has the evidence to back up this accusation and provide it to the police so that I can be prosecuted for criminal offence.
“I have been maligned and subjected to undue pressure to take sides in the course of the protracted NFF crisis that raged like a wild fire since June and i had tried to maintain my neutrality by not taking sides with any of the warring faction.
