SPORTS NEWS: NFF Kicks as Ex-Abia Governor Orji Kalu Declares to Contest for President of FIFA

It was obvious last night that the Nigeria Football Federation may not endorse the candidature of former Abia State Governor, Orji Uzor Kalu for FIFA Presidency. Former Wimbledon star John Fashanu among many others have been campaigning for Kalu to contest the election to replace Sepp Blatter. However, Kalu has to be endorsed first by the Nigeria Football Federation before he can contest for the position. The federation also has to consider section one of article 13 of the FIFA statutes of the section which specifies conditions a candidate running for the office of FIFA President must meet.
The article states: The candidate shall have played an active role in association football (as a board member, committee member, referee and assistant referee, coach, trainer and any other person responsible for technical, medical or administrative matters in FIFA, a Confederation, Association, League or Club or as a player) for two of the last five years before being proposed as a candidate (cf. art. 24 par. 1 of the FIFA Statutes).
