First Vice President of the Nigeria Football Federation Barrister Seyi Akinwunmi says they will not be distracted by the allegations labeled against the federation, as there is no going back in their determination to ensure that Nigerian football teams perform well in all the international competitions they have qualified for.
Speaking in Uyo after the Akwa Ibom State FA elections, the re-elected Lagos FA Chairman cum Legal luminary said, “There is no crime making allegations as long as you can justify it. If you don’t justify it, be ready for the repercussion. Many allegations have been made, none have been proven. As far as we are concerned, we will continue to forge ahead.”
“The allegation always coming before a major tournament like the World Cup and the African Cup of Nations is aimed at distracting us but we have vowed not to be distracted by any allegation. If we are called to give explanation on any allegation, we will avail ourselves but all of these allegations are fabricated falsehood against the federation.”
Furthermore, Akinwunmi expressed delight and satisfaction at the choice of Lagos to host the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Super Six.
“We are ready to host, you know Lagos is the centre of excellence. I’m grateful to the League Management Company for the choice of Lagos State as the centre for Super Six.”
