Recall the minister of sports and youth development, Barr. Solomon Dalung last week said and advice the Nigerian FA body (NFF) to vote for Isa Hayatou of Cameroun base on Federal Governments foreign policy with Cameroun.
Less than 24hrs, the NFF President Melvin Amaju Pinnick came out publicly to seek for votes for Mr. Ahmed Ahmed of Madagascar.
