The president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, has told the federation’s congress he has been cleared of any wrong doing by both of the country’s anti-graft agencies, EFCC and ICPC.
Pinnick made this disclosure during a closed-door meeting with the congress at the NFF Annual General Assembly in Jos recently, while also praising the NFF for the transparent accounting practices they have now put in place which have been hugely commended by their external auditors.
The NFF president’s declaration comes after he made the same claim during a meeting of the southsouth caucus in Lagos around the time of the Aiteo Cup final.
He reportedly singled out one of the top NFF executive committee members for making this clearance letters from EFCC and ICPC possible.
It was gathered that EFCC was investigating the disbursement of cash by the NFF from the grants they receive from world football governing body FIFA.
ICPC, on the other hand, was probing the 400 million Naira allegedly used to renovate the new NFF office, the Sunday Dankaro House, which is located at the Package B of the National Stadium Complex in Abuja.
