The Ten Year Football Development Master Plan Committee Committee led by renowned sports administrator, Alhaji Ibrahim Galadima, was inaugurated late last year to map out a 10-year development plan for Nigerian football

“They have done a fantastic job and the Honourable minister is quite satisfied with what they have done and has now fixed a date for formal handing over of the report. God willing Wednesday, June 29, the committee will wind down with the handing over of the report,” Chief of Staff to the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, Alhaji Abba Yola told

On the stories making the round that the committee demanded N100 million to complete the assignment, Alhaji Abba Yola countered, “there is no truth in those stories. The committee never made such demand, the delay in handing over was as a result of the Honourable Minister’s tight schedule.”
