 The Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung, has urged football stakeholders to remain calm over some appointments into the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Board, by the Federal Government.
Dalung in a statement on Saturday, in Abuja, said efforts were being made to correct an oversight made, following the recent appointments to the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Board, by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Recall, that the Federal Government had announced the appointments on Friday, of over 1,000 members, including 209 Board Chairmen.
They are to fill positions on the Boards of Government Parastatals, including the NFF and the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC.
Others are the National Institute for Sports, and the Citizenship and Leadership Training Centre, which are all under the Ministry of Youth and Sports Development.

Dalung in the statement released by Nneka Ikem-Anibeze, his Special Assistant on Media, stated that the appointment of members into the NFF Board by the Federal Government was wrong, describing it as “an oversight”.
“By virtue of their (NFF) Statutes, members are elected and not appointed.
“The appointments were an oversight, which is being sorted out. NFF is governed by Statutes and Board members are elected by Congress, and not appointed.
“I am appealing for calm from all stakeholders, as it was an administrative oversight. Efforts are tailored towards addressing it very soon.”
The Minister also stated that Federal Government and Football’s world governing body, FIFA, were in talks to clarify the issue, and assureed them that no harm was intended.
“I have spoken with the FIFA’s General Secretary over the situation in Nigeria, and conveyed the Federal Government’s commitment to upholding the governance structure of the NFF”, he said.
