The Secretary General of Nigeria Football Federation ( NFF) Dr Mohammed Sanusi has confirmed that one member of the federation has tested positive for corona virus, OJB Sport reports.
Sporting activities has been put on hold across the world including Nigeria since March this year due to the outbreak of Corona virus.
Even the resumption of date of the Nigeria Professional Football League Club is yet to be confirm despite restart of non contact sports.
Dr Sanusi stated that every member of the football body will go through compulsory covid19 test slated for Thursday.
He also said the football house in Abuja will be shut down in order to fumigate the entire offices.
“Apart from him testing positive, I also had issues and had to go for tests when I was feeling ill and uncomfortable. But the truth is most of us have had contact with one another over the days, thus it is important we do the tests.
“I want to appreciate the Federal Government immensely for their efforts so far to contain the pandemic, and also officials of the Nigeria Centre for Disease and Control for agreeing to come to the NFF offices to conduct the tests. After the tests, the offices and the entire complex will be disinfected in line with the protocols of the COVID19,” stated Dr. Sanusi.
