NFF crisis deepens over Anambra State FA elections


The controversy surrounding the elections into the board of the Anambra State FA is gathering more dust as yet another delegate in the elections, Mike Mbaezue has also threatened to take the Nigeria Football Federation to court.

Mbaezue, owner of Nigeria Nationwide League club, Jimbaz FC, was supposed to be one of the voting delegates at the elections, but failed to do so as the elections were held on Tuesday, May 3, as against the scheduled date of Wednesday, May 4.

He said: “We were informed that elections will be held on Wednesday, May 4, only for me to be told later that the elections had held and Ifeanyi Ubah had emerged as the new FA chairman,” Mbaezue told

“I was disenfranchised and as far as I am concerned, they have not conducted elections in Anambra State and I am still waiting for them to conduct elections,” he added.

Asked what his next line of action would be if the NFF fail to conduct fresh elections, Mbaezue stated categorically that he would seek legal redress in the court of law.

“We will seek for justice because I have written petitions to the NFF and sports minister on how I was disenfranchised.

“Till now, I haven’t received any responses on my petitions and personally what I will do is go to court,” he said.
