Danagogo begs Giwa to Withdraw your case from court and make peace


The Sports Minister, Tammy Danagogo, on Tuesday urged all the parties involved in the current crisis rocking the Nigeria Football Association (NFA) to withdraw their case from the court.

Danagogo made the appeal in a statement in Abuja by his Special Assistant on Media, Patrick Omorodion, saying this would be in the interest of the game and the country.

It further quoted Danagogo as saying this was necessary as it was “the only way for a smooth administration of football and to avoid constant confrontation with the sport’s world governing body FIFA’’. “They have to withdraw their case from the court, make peace and resolve their differences,’’ the minister, who is also the Chairman, National Sports Commission (NSC), said in the statement.

While appealing to the factions to withdraw their case from the court, the statement quoted Danagogo as saying there was “a need for those involved to make sacrifices in the spirit of give-and-take’’.

Danagogo acknowledged that he or the NSC as a body could not stop individuals from going to court nor stop the courts from hearing cases brought before them.

“There is nothing we can do, except to persuade them not to do go to the courts,’’ the minister said in the statement.
