He tendered his resignation on Wednesday March 18, 2015, a letter that was accepted by NFF president Amaju Pinnick.

Accepting the resignation, the NFF Executive Committee said it respected Amadu’s decision and wished him success in his future endeavours.

“We greatly appreciate his quality contributions to the development of football in Nigeria. His professionalism, hardwork and commitment to his duty helped in no little way in keeping the NFF administration stable and efficient. Without any doubt, when the story of Nigerian football is written, Musa Amadu’s name will be etched in gold.”

Sanusi resumed at the NFF as Assistant Secretary General (Competitions) in 2007 and was Director of Competitions before his new appointment.
