A board member of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) lead by Chris Giwa, Honourable Shehu Adamu has alleged that embattled factional president of the NFF, Amaju Pinnick lied to FIFA in his letter to the world soccer governing body.

Shehu Adamu made this known in an exclusive chat with Owngoalnigeria.com on the NFF impasse following the court ruling that nullified the elections that brought Amaju Pinnick into office as president of the apex football body in Nigeria.

“Have you seen a copy of the letter he (Pinnick) wrote to FIFA? We have the letter in our custody and at the appropriate time we will reveal it for Nigerians to see the lies in it” He told Owngoalnigeria.com.

“It’s a pity that some individuals can go to any length to rubbish the image of our country, in the letter the lies he told about the minister to FIFA was what lead to the letter of warning but soon FIFA will know the real truth.

“This is an internal matter that can be solved without FIFA’s intervention but those who don’t mean well are trying to make it look like we are slaves to FIFA, they have no say in this”.
