A 58-year-old sports administrator Ibrahim Musa Gusau has succeeded Amaju Pinnick as the new President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) in the 78th Annual meeting held on Friday 30th October at Benin, Edo state in Nigeria.
Ibrahim Musa Gasau pulled 39 votes out of 40 votes to emerge as the new boss of the NFF in the re-run election, beating off competition from Shehu Dikko, who could manage only one vote.
Gasau would have been the outright winner of the election but failed to have the required 50 percent +1 votes of the total 41 votes cast.
In the first-round election, the Zamfara FA chairman defeated nine other contestants but failed to meet the 22 votes requirements after he amassed 21 votes with only one vote short of the 22 votes.
All the other candidates withdraw from the re-run except Shehu Dikko, who manage to pull six votes in the first run election.
Ibrahim Musa Gasau becomes the 40th President of the Nigeria Football Federation.
He is a qualified accountant and he is a safety and security officer with the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and also a member of the CAF Organizing Committee for the African Nations Championship (CHAN).
He is the NFF chairman of chairmen for 8years and also chairman of the Zamfara football Association he hails from.
The new boss of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is the former president of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN).
