Lagos - Football's governing body FIFA is expected to intervene in the matters of the Nigeria Football Federation once again this week, after a dispute was lodged over the legitimacy of the current administration.
Since the Nigeria Football Federation elected its new leadership earlier this year, two reports have emerged - one from the majority camp and the other from the minority camp. Naturally both of those contradict each other, with the minority disputing that Amaju Pinnick was elected as the president of the federation this year.
The Nigeria Football Federation has since indicated that both the reports, which emanated from the Appeals Committee, have been sent to FIFA for its perusal. FIFA is also expected to deliver a verdict on the matter this week.

Speaking to the Daily Independent, the NFF Head of Media, Ademola Olajire said: "What we are expecting is FIFA's pronouncement on the matter."
"We saw two reports from the Committee, one from the minority and another from the majority; these reports have been packaged to FIFA. They will decide," added Olajire.
"It is wrong to judge or say anything. If there is a crew of three people with a secretary in a committee and one brings out a report, one out of three is a minority report, the last report is a minority report and it is left for FIFA to determine," he said.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page.
