Barrister Musa Amadu on Wednesday left office as General Secretary of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
In his letter of resignation dated 18th March, 2015 and addressed to the NFF President, the 53-year old lawyer said his resignation took immediate effect and thanked the President, the Executive Committee and indeed “everyone at the NFF for the singular honour of serving our great country in this position and wish you and the NFF the very best in the years ahead.”
NFF Media Officer, Ademola Olajire said the NFF Executive Committee has accepted the resignation, adding that it respected Barrister Amadu’s decision and wished him success in his future endeavours.
Amadu, with 28 years at The Bar, was one of the first Nigerians to earn the FIFA Master degree in law, humanities and sports management, and served as Deputy Secretary General (General Services) at the NFF before becoming the General Secretary in July 2010.
Olajire also disclosed that the NFF Executive Committee has immediately announced the appointment of Dr. Mohammed Sanusi as the new General Secretary of the Federation.
Sanusi, 51, attended the Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto before earning a bachelor’s degree in physical and health education from the Usman dan Fodio University. He also has a master’s degree from the University of Ibadan and a doctorate degree from the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.
He resumed at the NFF as Assistant Secretary General (Competitions) in 2007 and was Director of Competitions before his new appointment.
