Kalu To Contest For NFF Presidency

Ahead of next month’s elections into the board of the Nigeria Football Federation, former governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor Kalu has expressed his desire to contest for the position of the NFF president.

Kalu told sl10.ng that he is interested in becoming the next NFF boss. “I am interested in becoming the next president of the NFF,” he said.

There is controversy presently in Nigerian football with a high court injunction sacking the board of the Nigeria Football Federation led by Aminu Maigari.

Elections into the NFF board have already been fixed for the 26th of August and it is on that premise that Kalu believes he becomes the next NFF boss.


“I will run for the position if the atmosphere is good,” he stated.

Kalu, who served as governor for eight years in Abia state, South East Nigeria also posited that Nigeria will be the first African side to win the World Cup, with him in charge.

“I believe Nigeria can win the world if I become the NFF president,” he added.
