fifa-fully-lift-nigeria-suspension(Codewit)Pleased with the progress made thus far, the executive committee of FIFA has decided to lift the suspension slammed against the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) after receiving confirmation that the court actions against elected members of the NFF had ceased and that they could now work without hindrance.

 This decision was taken today at Zurich, where it was also agreed that the voting process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bids will go on as scheduled on December 2.

After over sixty days of crisis, with no clear direction for the country’s football, the board of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), on Wednesday, finally stepped into the Glass House, the NFF secretariat, in Abuja, to have its first board meeting.

Some of the decisions taken at the meeting include the fixing of November 6 for the commencement of the Nigeria Premier League and the shortlisting of Samson Siasia and Stephen Keshi for the Super Eagles coaching job.
