Nigeria will be the destination and attention of world football for three days, when the FIFA Executive Football Summit takes centre stage between February 20 and 22 at the Eko Hotels in Lagos.

President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Melvin Pinnick, while confirming the news on AIT yesterday morning, said the country is ready to host the event and hopes the summit helps strengthen Nigeria’s relationship with other football federations.

“Gianni Infantino will be in Nigeria on Monday (next week) for the FIFA Executive Summit which will be a three-day event and this will bring all international media down to Nigeria,” Pinnick hinted.

According to AOIFootball.com those expected to be in attendance include; CAF President, Ahmad, FIFA General Secretary, Fatima Samba Samoura, President of the Dutch FA, Michael Van Praag, Slavisa Ikokezia, President of Serbia federation as well as six presidents from the Caribbean nations. 12 African countries are also expected to feature at the event.

A total of 25 presidents are expected to be in attendance at the summit with Pinnick also positing that the entire event will be funded by FIFA and will also boost the country’s economy.

This will be the second time in less than four months that Infantino will be visiting Nigeria, a clear indication that the country is gradually taking her rightful place in world football.

    Why do ThisDay journalists like the meaningless and stupid verb “Storm” in their headlines? Could this paper make all their mediocre scribes read the legendary British journalist, Harold Evans’ “Did I make myself clear?” That book will turn a few of them into journalists!
