Sports Minister Solomon Dalung has inaugurated a 6-man Elders Stakeholders Reconciliation Committee to ensure a peaceful resolution of the lingering crisis in the Nigeria Football Federation.

During the inauguration Monday, Dalung noted that except personal interests were set aside, the lingering crisis that has impeded Nigerian football will continue unabated, Vanguard writes.

The minister also charged the members “to identify the causes of the current leadership crisis in the NFF, evaluate the dimensions of the leadership crisis and the contribution of actors to the issue, invite both boards of the two factions to the reconciliation table

The Committee which was given two weeks to submit its report has a former NFA President Col Abdulmumini Aminu as its Chairman.

Other members are former Presidents Alhaji Ibrahim Galadima and Anthony Kojo Williams, Prof. Onye Gyd- Wado, Dr Sam Sam Jaja, and Mr Bolaji Ojo-Oba. A Secretariat to provide proper documentation of all activities of the Committee comprises Mr Danjuma Muhammed Ag. Dir, Legal Services, Stanley Okebugwu and Reuben Tiyatiye.

The constitution of the committee comes after a High Court in Jos suspended ruling on the leadership tussle till September 29.

Until a resolution is reached, the Amaju Pinnick-led board remains in charge of the Glass House.
