NFF to partner with 1 GAME on football violence


Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) President Aminu Maigari says the nation’s football governing body will join forces with anti-violence initiative, 1 GAME to stamp out violence in Nigeria football.

Maigari told 1 GAME’s Chuma Nnoli in Abuja that a collaborative effort between both organizations will be key in the fight to keep Nigeria football free from violence.

“1 GAME is an institution that everyone must respect because it’s a voluntary organization that seeks to educate Nigeria football fans on how to conduct themselves and how to contribute in moving the game forward.

“I must appreciate 1 GAME and I must say more grease to its elbow. I will continue to urge it to keep up the good work it is doing.

“The Nigeria Football Federation will collaborate with 1 GAME as we seek ways of eradicating violence from the game,” he said.

The Aminu Maigari led board of the Nigeria Football Federation had previously endorsed the 1 GAME initiative during the Annual General Assembly of the Nigeria Football Federation held in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State in December 2010.

1 GAME seeks to address the problem of violence in football and the society nationwide through collaborative and systematic effort.
