Newly elected President of the Nigerian Football Federation, Alhaji Ibrahim Musa Gusau has pledged his forward moving ideas to help grow Nigerian football from the grassroots level to the highest football level.
In comparison to Amaju Pinnick predecessors, Nigeria did not win enough trophy in his eight year tenure but the newly elected president, Alhaji Gusau who was a former Chairman of Chairmen and Member of the NFF Executive Committee under the Amaju Melvin Pinnick administration has promised to turn the table around and win Nigeria trophies at all level.
“Administration at every level, that of football inclusive, requires the wisdom to be able to listen to everyone who has an idea and then pick the very best to deal with each situation at hand. Those of us in the Executive Committee are only privileged to be representing the entire fraternity.
“We will run an inclusive administration in which ideas and advice will be welcome from all quarters, and will be guided in our resolutions. It is very important to resuscitate the League and engender a massive football economy from which every stakeholder can benefit and also be happy to contribute to its growth,” Gusau said.
Ibrahim Musa Gusau was also a former Chairman of the Zamfara State Sports Commission, served as a Member of the organizing committee for the African Nations Championship, and is today a Member of the CAF organizing committee for youth competitions, viz U17, U20 and U23. He is also a Safety and Security Officer of the Confederation of African Football.
Gusau has also reiterated that he will develop grassroots football that will serve as an unending resource for professional football.
“It is important to prioritize grassroots football and youth development, and that we will take to heart. It is also important to win trophies, and both can go side-by-side. Winning trophies is good for our country’s image in the international sphere and also helps to motivate the upcoming stars at the grassroots level.”
