These instructions were included in a letter from Sunday Dare, the honorable minister of youth and sports development, dated June 17, 2022, and issued to Amaju Pinnick, president of the Nigeria Football Federation.

The leadership of the NFF was urged by President Buhari to make sure that the amended statutes reflect the national yearnings, aspirations, and peculiarities of Nigeria as a sovereign nation while being in line with the principles and goals of football as established by FIFA, which reaffirmed the Federal Government’s support for football development in the nation.
