27 August 2014, 10:40

Abuja - The General Assembly of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has unanimously agreed on September 4 as the date for its elective congress in Abuja, Supersport.com can report.

Forty of the 44 congress delegates took part in the decision-making to draw up a new roadmap for the elections into the NFF executive committee, which took place in Nigeria's capital.
