      Nothing is coming out of it – this is an exercise in futility.
      The stupid, lame duck minister is just trying to score points with the HB must play brigade which some misguided Nigerians foolishly believe is the panacea of Nigerian football.

      As someone pointed out in this thread, Infrastructure is the solution. The lame duck minister and his band of fools (Odegbami and Amokachi) should please step aside and let the NFF run the show.

      The committees report belong in one place and one place only…the thrash can!

    There are many elements to develop Nigerian football, frist element is developing of football administration with many means of it like employing proffesional leaders who have high studies in football from European univerisities, enact conduct ethic law which rule administrive leaders in order they do not bribe on football activities, establshing administrive football institute to develop refrees, empolyees of NFF , NFF leaders.In clubs affairs NFF must enact a law which impose on any club in NPLF to be public sharing company in order to approve their positioning also in this law NFF must impose for these clubs to establish academies, staduims with international styler, these academies must graduate players on aged phasas in order to grant these clubs with talented players who will go in future to Europe; this position when clubs approved them selves they can offer good contracts for players whom they would like to register them, with good wages , bonuses; clubs can build thier special hotel, can buy their special aircraft can do any facilities to make their players in excellent relax and leisure.In NPLF NFF must make programme of this leauge like international leauges in the World just like European leauges.In coaching affairs NFF must enact a law that any coach has an internationalfootball licence from international institute or university with experience less than tow years in football tenure, if there found a bribe to contract with a coach hasn’t this trait, the club would be fined and prohibited from particiting in NPLF to one season. In Super Eagles affairs NFF must find a big sponsership who has a huge financial centre, NFF must not enter in SE coaching crew in selecting players for SE, NFF must pay coaching crew and players their wages and bonuses in time, NFF must equip football facilities for coaching crew , NFF must repair bad stadiums grounds for SE international encounter; I think Godwill Akpapio in Uyo is better stadium in Nigeria which can recept SE international encounter.So I think with these few elements Nigeria football can fly in a high sky.
