Adamu's previous ban came after being implicated in corruption
allegations concerning the fiercely criticized votes selecting Russia and Qatar
as hosts of the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
Adamu was filmed in a British newspaper sting in 2010 asking
undercover reporters posing as bidders for $800,000 to influence his World Cup
hosting vote, saying he wanted the money paid to him personally so he could
finance soccer fields in Nigeria.
He was suspended and not allowed to take part in the
December 2010 votes, then banned for three years by FIFA and failed in two
appeals against his sanction.
