Abuja - The Board of the Nigeria Football Association (NFA) on Wednesday in Abuja dissolved some of its standing committees.
This is contained in a communiqué issued at the end of its meeting which was read to newsmen by Emeka Inyama, the Chairman, Communique Drafting Committee.
Inyama said the dissolution of some of the committees was in line with the NFA’s statutes which stipulated that they should be re-constituted after two years.
The affected committees included the Technical led by Mr Christopher Green, Finance chaired by Dr Shehu Adamu and the Olaleye Adepoju-led Disciplinary Committee.
Inyama said the board had also set up an ad hoc committee to be chaired by the NFA First Vice President, Mike Umeh.
According to him, the ad-hoc committee is saddled with the responsibility of organising fund-raising dinners for the Super Eagles participation in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) to be hosted by South Africa.
``Funds raised at these dinners will complement the expected grant from the Federal Government for the prosecution of the Super Eagles’ campaign.’’
Speaking on its forthcoming Annual General Assembly (AGA) slated for Dec. 13, he said the board had chosen Port Harcourt for the event.
``The NFA chairman had a meeting with the zonal coordinators last night (Tuesday night) and all matters have been resolved regarding the AGA holding in Port Harcourt.
``If the technical committee has said the controversies about Port Harcourt have been resolved, so it is,” he added.
He said the board had agreed to meet with the board of the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) on Thursday to resolve all issues hindering the commencement of the 2012/2013 league season.
