President of the Nigeria Football Federation Amaju Pinnick on Tuesday inaugurated the body’s new Audit Committee and the Technical Study Group at the NFF Secretariat, Abuja, the NFF announced in a press release.
Members of the TSG include ex-Super Eagles star Taribo West, Austin Okocha and Victor Agali.
“The Audit Committee will complement the efforts of our external auditors, PriceWaterHouse Coopers, and much is expected of them,” Pinnick said.
Pinnick also declared that the Technical Study Group would function as a committee, collating, analysing and putting at the disposal of the Federation, data and new thinking that can enhance the rapid development of the Nigeria game.
“The Chairman, Alhaji Abba Yola, needs no introduction. He is someone who has seen it all in sports administration and we thank him immensely for accepting to serve Nigerian Football in this capacity. In due course, members of the Technical Study Group will be attached to the various National Teams to impact on those teams.”
On his part, Yola said: “I commend the NFF for coming up with a panel like the Technical Study Group. We will work as a group and with the Technical Committee, and in the interest of all the National Teams, including the U-13.”
NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, urged the committees to route their reports through the proper channels without making public their recommendations, while also thanking them for accepting to serve the nation.
