The new man and board that will constitute the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF will emerge today at the 78th Annual General Assembly of the federation to be held in Benin City, Edo State.

Apart from the election of the new NFF President, the election of a new Executive Committee to steer the affairs of the nation’s supreme football ruling body for the next four years will be held.

A ruling by the Court of Appeal yesterday ordered a stay-of-execution of an ex parte injunction secured by some fellows a fortnight ago to stop the elections, meaning that the coast is now clear for an interesting contest for the NFF presidency by 10 prominent individuals and dozen other notable persons jostling for seats on the Executive Committee.

It was reported that representatives of the world football-governing body, FIFA arrived in Benin City to monitor the election.
