The Nigerian government has set up a committee that will screen and select a suitable candidate for next year’s CAF executive committee elections.
Nigeria Football Federation President Amaju Pinnick has already submitted his nomination to CAF, but this did not reportedly have the backing of the government.
Sports minister Solomon Dalung says the government has yet to endorse a candidate for the polls and as such it has set up a committee to recommend a suitable person for its endorsement.
The CAF polls are slated for March 2017.
Meanwhile, former CAF FIFA member Adegboye Onigbinde says the disagreement between the minister and the NFF shows there are problems with football administration in Nigeria.
