Nigerian Legislators may probe FIFA vote selling allegations

The allegations of vote-selling that have cropped up against Amos Adamu, Nigerian FIFA executive member has been called an embarrassment to the country by a member of the Nigeria’s parliament, Godfrey Gaiya.

Speaking to Brilafm.net, Gaiya said that the House committee on sports will look into the matter soon enough.

“It is definitely an embarrassment for the country, but still an allegation for now” Gaiya said.

“We have to wait to see evidence or proof before we take any position on the matter. If the story is found to be true, sanctions will surely be taken against him.”

Adamu, who is president of the West African Football Union (WAFU) is alleged to have told undercover journalists that he wanted $800,000 to build four artificial football pitches in Nigeria in exchange for voting in favour of the United States as hosts of the 2018 World Cup.

He is charged alongside Oceania football boss Reynald Temarii.
