The House of Representatives has walked out the Secretary-General of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Dr Mohammed Sanusi from the venue of the investigation into the face off between the nation’s female football team, Super Falcons and officials of the Federation over non payment of allowances and entitlements.
The Chairman of the ad hoc committee investigating the crisis, Hon Blessing Onuh who ordered the Secretary out of the meeting also summoned the president of the NFF, Ibrahim Gusau to appear before them unfailingly.
Onuh said the sitting of the committee was not to witch hunt anyone but to discharge its functions in line with the mandate of the House.
She frowned at the NFF President’s deliberate refusal to honour the invitation of the ad hoc committee.
“Nigerians are interested, Nigerians are watching. The girls did extremely well and they made Nigerians proud, so we shouldn’t take this investigative hearing lightly.
“We gave an opportunity for the president of NFF to appear before this ad-hoc committee I will say invariably he is the one summoning us, he came up with an excuse that is not as important as what we have.
The NFF Secretary General, Dr Mohammed Sanusi said the NFF president could not attend the investigative hearing because of his ill-health.
The ad hoc committee, however, walked out the Secretary General and his team who came to represent the NFF president.
