Jonathan Hails Amaechi, Ekeji Over New NFF Hqtrs

New Nigerian Football Federation Headquarters building

LAGOS JULY 19TH (URHOBOTODAY)-President, commander in chief of the Armed Forces, Federal Republic of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan has said that the new headquarters for the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), named after the former chairman of the Nigerian Football Association (NFA) would be the catalyst that will catapult Nigerian football to a greater height.
He hailed the prudence of the Governor Amaechi/Patrick Ekeji led PTF in the vision to build a befitting football headquarters for the nation. The building was named after Dankaro, a former NFA chairman between 1974 and 1980.
As NFA chairman, he had the fortune of seeing the then Green Eagles capture its first African Nation’s cup trophy which earned the footballers cars, houses and awards.
The president, represented by the vice president, Architect Muhammed Namadi Sambo, stated this yesterday while commissioning the 27 office room building with a penthouse for the NFF president, 110 car parking spaces, 4 conference halls and 2 sub-committee rooms, central reception and waiting lounge for visitors built at the cost of N336.321, 111.00 by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on Super Eagles qualification for the 2010 World Cup.
Commending the Governor Chibuike Rotimi Ameachi led task force for their financial prudence and foresight in conceiving the idea of building a befitting corporate headquarters for the administration of football in the country, he said: “The PTF in submitting their report on Nigeria’s participation at the 2010 World Cup held in South Africa, sought the President’s approval to utilize the balance of the funds generated from private sectors to build a befitting headquarters for Nigeria football. I commend them not only for their foresight in conceiving this idea but also their commitment and sincerity. I strongly believe that this project will serve as catalysts for our sports development,” he said.
