Cape Town - Nigeria will indeed face South Africa in a crucial 2015 AFCON qualifier after Musa Amadu returned to work on Monday.
The Group A match was in doubt with Nigeria having until Monday morning to ensure Musa Amadu replaced Chris Giwa as Nigeria Football Feferation general secretary.
KickOff.com report that Musa Amadu has resumed his role as Nigeria Football Feferation (NFF) general secretary thus avoiding sanctions from FIFA.
Amadu's return means that Nigeria have complied with the deadline given to them by FIFA and thus will not face a suspension. FIFA instructed the NFF to reinstate Amadu after ruling that Chris Giwa's appointment was not valid.
Giwa claimed to have won the election but FIFA ruled in favour of Amadu.
"He is not here, and there is no indication that he will show up," said Amadu earlier today, ending months of speculation that Nigeria may be suspended by FIFA.
"Right now, I am in the office meeting with management staff to work a way forward so that the secretariat can function properly and our programmes can continue leading up to elections this month.
"I hope it continues this way in the interest of peace in Nigerian football."
