The Permanent Secretary in the Rivers state Ministry of Sports praised the Amaju Pinnick-led NFF for the transparent way and manner it has disbursed the funds in accordance with the earlier breakdown and FIFA guidelines.

According to him, “FIFA and the NFF must be commended for this transparent process. It has been done in such a manner that is open for all to see.

“FIFA must also be commended for such a gesture despite a challenging period of coronavirus pandemic across the world. It is a sign of a responsive and responsible football governing body.”

He assured that the funds allocated to SWAN would be utilized transparently in accordance with the stated guidelines.

“Let me state clearly that we will follow all guidelines as stated by FIFA and NFF; every penny expended would be published for all to see.

“Our mantra has always been responsive leadership and we will demonstrate that in all our dealings. An enlarged NEC meeting will hold in a couple of days to determine how the funds will be utilized,” he stressed.
