Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Executive Member Alhaji Ahmed Yusuf ‘Fresh’ says he’s not interested in running for the NFF Presidency.
Fresh, in response to media reports that he had declared his intention to contest for the number football office in the country, said the reports are far from the truth.
He said: “The report about my plans for NFF’s Presidential election is inaccurate because I have not discussed such with anyone. This is an election year and anyone is free to contest but the recent story regarding my said Presidential ambition is void of news accuracy ingredients and I urge the public to discard it, as I am not interested in the NFF Presidential race for now.”
However, the Niger State FA Chairman, who doubles as the NFF’s Technical and Development Committee Chairman seems busy with the tasks at hand and doesn’t want to be distracted.
“Presently, I’m occupied with National assignments, we are focused on football development across the country’s football layers, and of course, it is the Election year; But we have various National teams who are preparing for different events, so my attention is fully fixated on the teams while planning to give the crews a lot of support in my stead. I don’t want NFF’s General Elections or its statutory processes to move me away from my major tasks right now,” he maintained strongly.
Perhaps, some football stakeholders and sources who are closed to Insideglasshouse.com might have seen the leadership qualities of the NFF’s Vice-chairman Strategic Committee, hence, they fed the media such information linking him with Nigeria Football Federation’s Presidential race. However, Fresh has revealed he is not interested in the Presidential race, For now.
