The recommendations of the Master Plan Committee will enjoy the full backing of the Federal Government of Nigeria with the release of a Government White Paper, according to Sports Minister Sunday Dare.
Dare made this bold declaration when he received the report of the Master Plan Committee, which designed a 10-year development plan for Nigeria Football and is headed by former NFF President Ibrahim Galadima.
“Upon the receipt of this report, the next journey will be to deliver it to Mr President who will direct a white paper upon which the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development (FMYSD) and the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will drive the implementation in phases,” announced the Sports Minister.
The report of the Master Plan Committee has short, medium and long-term proposals.
It covers from football governance, infrastructure to sponsorship drive.
