    CAF Elections: Furore in the land over Adamu’s nomination
    *Galadima berates NFA
    *Nnaji lambasts Adedoja
    By Patrick Omorodion
    The country’s football polity was heated up again during the week with
    the alleged double nomination submitted by the Nigeria Football
    Association, NFA to the Confederation of African Football, CAF for next
    month ’s election into its Executive Committee.
    Following the three years suspension slammed on Dr. Amos Adamu,
    Nigeria ’s CAF and FIFA Executive Committee member by the world
    football governing body, the Aminu Maigari-led NFA Board nominated
    former chairman, Alhaji Ibrahim Galadima for the election to be able to
    beat the December deadline for the submission of names by interested
    federations.
    A twist was however, added to the process when early in the week it was
    reported that the NFA had indeed submitted Dr. Adamu ’s name to CAF,
    claiming that Alhaji Galadima would be on standby in case Dr. Adamu
    win ’s his Appeal against the ruling of FIFA’s Ethics Committee on his
    involvement in the cash-for-vote scandal last year.

    However, reacting to the action, Alhaji Galadima told Saturday Vanguard
    Sport that it (submission of Adamu ’s name) was embarrassing to the
    country stressing that “it’s like they (NFA) are dancing to Adamu, they
    don’t want to step on his toes and want to appease him.â€
