Sports Minister Saves Falcons From FIFA Ban

Sports Minister Saves Falcons From FIFA Ban

Sports Minister and Chairman National Sports Commission, Dr. Tammy Danagogo  claimed he saved the Super Falcons from being stopped by CAF from playing the final match of the African Women’s Championship  which took place in Windhoek, Namibia.

His comments came as a consequence of the Jos Federal High Court ruling which set aside the 30th September, 2014 election that brought in the Amaju Pinnick-led board of the Nigeria Football Federation.

Consequently, the minister has called on all football stakeholders, the judiciary and law enforcement agencies to understand that football matters should not be taken to the ordinary courts but the Court of Arbitration in Sports (CAS) to avoid threats or outright ban of the country by FIFA.

Speaking from Windhoek, Namibia where he had gone to deliver President Goodluck Jonathan’s goodwill message and also cheer the Super Falcons in the final against Cameroon in the African Women Championship, Dr. Danagogo said he had to negotiate with CAF to allow the Falcons play the final as they were almost stopped from playing.
