How NFF can attract Dangote, others to finance Nigerian Football

Tuesday, 27 December 2016


Former Nigeria international, Henry Nwosu believes the solution to the frequent poor state of finances of the NFF is to put it house in order.

He said the football house must, without further delay, reorganise its marketing department in order to attract Nigerian moneybags like the chairman of the Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote.

"If Aliko Dangote is interested to consider buying majority shares in English Premier League club, Arsenal FC, then he can be convinced to invest a fraction of his wealth in Nigeria football," Nwosu reasoned.

He blamed the leadership of the NFF for the frequent lack of funds among other things as a factor behind the slow progress this year, but Nwosu insisted that talking to the right people can help them address their financial shortcomings.

Nwosu called on the FA to look beyond the Government for funding after what has been described a difficult 2016.

He advised the FA to review their marketing strategy and cut their dependency on government, especially with the prevailing economic situation in the country.
