Ibrahim Musa Gusau has been elected as the new president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
Gusau was voted into the position at the federation’s committee election held in Benin on Friday. He polled 21 votes to beat his closest challenger former Ist Vice President Barrister Seyi Akinwunmi who got 12 votes, the National Daily reports.
Though Gusau did not poll the needed 22 votes to automatically win in the first ballot, other contenders opted out of the possible rerun. Amaju Melvin Pinnick was the former Chairman of the board.
