PFAN Rejects NFF’s Peace Committee, Urges Federation To Address Issues In Court

Professional Footballers Association of Nigeria, PFAN Task Force, rejected the Players Unions’ reconciliation committee inaugurated by the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF to settle the differences among factions of the players’ union.

NFF President, Ibrahim Gusau, inaugurated a five-man panel to finally and fully restore peace to the rank of Nigeria’s retired and active football players in Abuja.

He implored the members to work assiduously towards erasing all forms of misgivings among the game’s major actors and allow Nigerian football to move forward in peace and tranquility.

 He revealed that the Federation met with leaders of the two factions of the players’ union, where they deliberated on how to achieve reconciliation and peace.

However, reacting to the development, PFAN Task Force’s spokesman, Harrison Jalla, in a statement, said the NFF has no business with players’ issues, which he described as internal matters of the players union as an independent organisation and does not require any external influence.
