With Nigeria out of the World Cup, the forthcoming NFF elections is now the key focus for the NFF officials, as they have begun maneuvering to woo the delegates.

And after much haggling, state FA chairmen were paid $4,000 for being part of the World Cup jamboree, National Daily learnt.

The 36 FA chairmen plus that of the FCT are the bulk of the 44-man congress who will vote for a new executive committee of the NFF on September 29 in Katsina.

A source told  National Daily that The FA chairmen rejected an initial $3,000 before they settled for $4,000 in Saint Petersburg.

“Their secretaries, who will not vote at the elections, were paid half that sum.”

Former top NFF chieftains who also made the trip to Russia were paid $3,000 a man after they also turned down an initial offer of $1,500.

Cash will again play a crucial role in the next NFF vote.

At the September 2014 polls in Warri, the leading candidate paid as much as $13,000 to each delegate.
