Igbokwe alerts NFF over alleged plot go breach zoning rule




Vice-Chairman of the Nigeria Football Federation’s (NFF) Organising and Disciplinary Committee, Iyke Leo Igbokwe, has urged the NFF and the federation’s electoral committee to ensure equitable representation of the six geo-political zones in the executive committee during the forthcoming elections into the league boards.

In the petition entitled, ‘Advice on the zoning and sharing of the remainder three league board chairmanship positions,’ Igbokwe said, “I find it most necessary to personally write you and offer my free patriotic advice on the distribution of the chairmanship positions of the three remaining League Boards i.e. National League, Women League and Nationwide League respectively in the forthcoming League Board Elections in line with Art. 33 of the 2010 NFF Statutes, which provides for equal distribution of the fifteen (15) NFF Executive Committee positions amongst the Six (6) geopolitical zones of Nigeria,” Igbokwe wrote in the petition made available to The Guardian.

He added: “I want to recommend the distribution and zoning formula of the League Board Chairmanship positions that will best give effect to the intents of Art. 33 and save our League Boards from post-election crisis as was witnessed in 2011.”
