The crisis was however laid to rest for a while until the new Sports Minister was appointed.

After the heated crisis resolution meeting on Wednesday, Dalung said the gathering was worth it.

“They discussed, they exchanged pleasantries with eachother. Football is a very big family, they have to move together so that they can mobilized investments because as it is football is already rising, the status of Nigeria football is rising, our players are making us proud so they have no reason not to agree with eachother,” Dalung said after the meeting.

It would be recalled that abusive words were exchanged between Pinnick and Giwa during the meeting on Wednesday.
