Nigeria: FIFA ban is a blessing in disguise –Obaseki

PIONEER chairman of the Nigeria Premier League (NPL), Chief Oyuki Obaseki has described the suspension slammed on Nigeria as sad, but a blessing in disguise for the country.

Obaseki in a telephone chat with Tribunesports castigated FIFA for taking such a decision particularly on its argument against court cases.

“This is a very bad news, when I heard it I felt very sad because when you consider the implications of this action, one will feel sorry for Nigerian football, ” said the former second vice chairman of the Nigeria Football Federation.

Obaseki also described the development as good for the country saying that “it will allow us to sit back and check ourselves to know who really are into football business and those who want to go to the NFF just because of their own selfish interests.”
