The new President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Ibrahim Gusau, is determined to run an inclusive administration, promising to also focus on players’ welfare, Abbeylivenetwork.com gathered.
Gusau succeeded Amaju Melvin Pinnick as the new NFF helmsman on Friday in Benin City, Edo State, following a keenly contested election.
The former chairman of the Zamfara State Sports Commission defeated Shehu Dikko, Seyi Akinwunmi, Abba Yola, and Peterside Idah in the contest.
The 58-year-old will now manage the affairs of Nigeria football for the next four years.
“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,” Gusau told thenff.com.
“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.”
The new NFF executive committee will hold its first meeting this week.
