Nigerian football federation, corruption and development of football in NigeriaAuthor(s):
Dr. Okwudili Chukwuma Nwosu, Emmanuel UgwueruaAbstract:
The study was aimed at x-raying corruption and Football Development in Nigeria focussing on the Nigerian Football Federation. The study contends that football development in Nigeria anchored around the Nigeria football federation faces challenges of corruption, which is at alarming rate, and the real culprits and the actual perpetrators of corruption are not tried and thus, has led to under development of the round leather game in the country. The study suggested eradication of corruption in football as a major surgery that must be undergone, for effective development of football in Nigeria. This can be achieved among others by strengthening all the anti corruption agencies such as the 1ndependent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) and Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) by providing them with all the necessary facilities that will assist them in discharging their duties effectively as well as isolating them from undue interferences by politicians. The former status of the commission as toothless bulldogs should hence forth be strengthened and anybody who commits any financial crime in the NFF should be made to pay for the consequences of his/her actions. Similarly, security agencies must be made to become alert towards their responsibilities by investigating any NFF official suspected to have circumvented the law.Pages: 376-382 | 848 Views 12 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
