Nigeria acts to reduce run-ins with FIFA

The upper house of parliament, the Senate, voted to change the decree that governs the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) that effectively makes it an autonomous branch of the executive. Nigeria has repeatedly clashed with football’s world governing body since the end of the World Cup finals in Brazil. In July, FIFA slapped a nine-day international ban on the country after a court in the central city of Jos sacked then-NFF president Aminu Maigari and his executive committee.
