NFF seals deal with Radio Nigeria

13 November 2013, 14:38

Abuja - Football fans across the country can now enjoy live coverage of matches of the national teams, as the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) have entered into a partnership agreement that will guarantee wider and better coverage through the medium.

Director General of FRCN Bola Agboola, represented by ace broadcaster Emeka Odikpo, said he is looking forward to return the good old days of match commentary on radio as it is the tradition of Radio Nigeria.  

NFF President Aminu Maigari flanked by Executive Committee members, Chief Emeka Inyama and Alhaji Yusuf Fresh, Barrister Musa Amadu (General Secretary), Dr. Mohammed Sanusi (Director of Competitions), Mr. Adama Idris (Director of Marketing) and Mr. Ademola Olajire (Assistant Director, Media), consequently approved the take-off of the agreement, with Saturday’s 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier between Nigeria and Ethiopia in Calabar.

“The Nigeria Football Federation and the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria are great institutions with history of performance behind them, and with a lot to offer each other in a partnership, a statement from NFF reads.

“We are in a world where the broadcast media have become the driving agent of international sports. A partnership between the NFF and the FRCN at this juncture will benefit Nigeria football tremendously in a lot of areas.”

Once consolidated, the partnership will see Radio Nigeria activate in other areas like broadcast of Nigeria Premier League and Nigeria National League matches, as well as the Federation Cup and NFF events like the Annual General Assembly.
