    Really good move. This should be about revamping our domestic league, which in the long run will automatically, reflect on our national teams. It should never be about SE for now, as that will be criminal n counter productive. Ooooboy moke Una see food oo. Lolzz. The way Oliseh eyes n bros Odegbas eyes dey shine nor make me feel safe oh.

      Hopefully, the committee will face the real problems hindering our football development and not make it Rohr must go agenda.

    It will be the same old story.Not that they can’t do the job,by comming out with something that will work if implimented,but implimenting it the right way devoid of our corrupt tendencies is another thing. Another President will come in and the whole thing is forgotten and not his priority.
    What needs revamping is the country itself, what needs salvaging is Nigeria.If the country is in good shape,every other thing will fall in place but the way it is now,no matter what you come up with,it will rotten because the country is rotten.Meanwhile our best approach should be through the school sports,that’s most effective and the place to catch them young.

    MY recommendation for devolping Nigeria football fristly:- NFF must change on clubs and leauges mentality on how to adminstrate them; also NFF must enact a law for any club to recocile his situation to be public shiring company; must possess his own stadium with all facilities,has acrew of professinal employees,has a special aircraft to travel with it.The clubs must put a salary grade or sekelton for players and empolyees and also must put clear career conditions for empolyees and players and workers in the club;the club must put insurance for any empolyee or players.NFF must also compel any club to establish an academy for yearlong stages; NFF must orgnize a leauge for a yearlong stages(rosebuds,juvinles,youth).In coaches fields NFF must impose over any club to hire a coach who has training certificate from any university or any recognized academy from Europe or any where; If any player from NPFL would like to join European club or African he must choose the club not his agent,cause agent is greedy to choose the club which pay more than choosing quality club in strong leauges; agent choose club in tiny leauges like:Hengerian,Belgium,Lexomborgan,Israelian,Belarussian,lituanian,Geogrgian,or any weak league.NFF must abide or assasse a technical congress for a best pattern or style of play that any coach must depend on for Super Eagles; just like to impose a defensive style of play with a pace and quick counter attackt versus the compititer or rival which must be exaction or imposition over any coach who will lead SE.NFF must recommend the government are not interfine in technical matters…

    There was a similar idea after the 1999 u 17 world cup hosted by nigeria. After the mundial, the nff set up a grassroot football programme in the guise of football academies accros the geo-political zones in the country called “NFA Weekend Soccer Academy”. The idea was to start grooming football stars from an early age across the country in order to discover great football talents that would step into the shoes or replace at all levels aging football players thereby providing reliable supply base of wonderful players but as usual, corruption, nepotism and greed led to the agonizing death of the programme. Hence, this move by these folks is Nothing new but the question is: will it be susutained and maintained devoid of corruption and nepotism. Only time shall tell.

    Too many cooks! Typical Nigeria! They’ll earn sitting allowances and then submit volumes that nobody will read. Odegbami, Oliseh and a good economist could do the job
