Kalu, Odegbami Miss Out On FIFA Race

27 October 2015, 21:00

Abuja - Orji Uzor Kalu and Segun Odegbami have both missed out on the deadline to submit their bids for the FIFA presidency.

Former Abia State governor, Kalu, and former Nigeria international, Odegbami both signified their interest to run for the office of the FIFA presidency, but failed to meet with the deadline of midnight of Monday, October 26.

Just days to the deadline, it was widely reported that the Nigeria Football Federation had endorsed Odegbami as their candidate for the position, even though there was no official confirmation from the Glass House.

It remains unknown why both men failed to meet with the deadline, but as the deadline passed, there were only eight official contenders, with Odegbami and Kalu's names missing.

The eight official contenders are: Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan; David Nakhid of Trinidad and Tobago; Jerome Champagne of France; Michel Platini of France (subject to ratification); South Africa's Tokyo Sexwale; Shaikh Salman Bin Brahim AL Khalifa of Bahrain; Gianni Infantinno of Switzerland and Liberia's Musa Bility.

This means neither of Odegbami or Kalu will replace outgoing Sepp Blatter on February 26 next year.
