The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), yesterday announced that former NFA Chairman, Alhaji Ibrahim Galadima, will serve as Match Commissioner, in the eagerly awaited friendly between the Super Eagles and the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone taking place in Lagos Wednesday.
NFF Technical Committee boss, Chris Green, said the appointment is in recognition of Galadima’s robust credentials as a sports and football technocrat and that the former Kano State Commissioner for Sports has already accepted to play the role.
The idea was muted by NFF President, Aminu Maigari, who called up Galadima along with Green and the he accepted to play the role.
Confirming the development, Galadima said anything he can do to move sports and football forward in the country he would do, hence his acceptance of the role of Match Commissioner.
“It’s a call to service and we’re always up for such national and international duties. He is expected in Lagos Wednesday morning for the game scheduled for 7pm Nigerian time.
The NFF has already forwarded Galadima’s name as Nigeria’s replacement for Dr Amos Adamu, in the CAF Executive Committee seat.
