Dalung’s Peace Talk Unnecessary – Toro

by on January 22, 2016

Former Secretary General of the Nigeria Football Association (NFA), Ahmed Sani Toro, has described the peace-talks between Chris Giwa and Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) President, Amaju Pinnick, initiated by the Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Barrister Solomon Dalung as ill-timed.
Toro further contends that the peace parley was a ridicule of FIFA statutes and may not achieve the desired results.
The peace meeting between the feuding parties convened by the Minister was deadlocked as no definite decision was reached after the 3-hour session which turned rowdy with members of the groups almost exchanging blows.
Sani Toro said that the idea to bring the principal parties was ‘ unfortunate’ and advised the Minister to distant himself from the aggrieved Giwa group to save the country sanctions from the world governing body ,FIFA.
“It’s really unfortunate because in the first instance that meeting was uncalled for. The timing was wrong. Chris Giwa and his group were called by the secretary of the government in the past and if they wanted to be part of the elections (2014). They went to the Tribunal, FIFA and even CAS and before that, there was a court ruling.
“We shouldn’t ridicule ourselves, we know the rules. I would advise the Minister strongly he should distant himself from Giwa’s group because Fifa is watching and it could evoke certain sections of the statutes’.
