Nigeria: Frowns over FIFA suspension

Officials, players and fans reacted on Monday with disbelief and anger following the country’s suspension by FIFA as a result of government interference in the running of the game in Nigeria.

On Monday, FIFA announced that the country has been banned from all levels of football until the elected board of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is allowed to function without government interference. Acting secretary-general of the NFF, Emmanuel Ikpeme, confirmed the FIFA suspension but refused to comment further.
