Gusau who was elected president of the federation on September 30 in Benin City, the Edo State capital served two terms as Chairman of chairmen of the NFF and an executive board member under the Amaju Pinnick dispensation. Speaking to the thenff.com, Gusau says he is committed to bring all stakeholders of the sport to a round table so as to move the sport forward.
The NFF president says top on his list will be the resuscitation of the NPFL as well as the welfare of players and officials representing the country.
“It is very important to resuscitate the League and engender a massive football economy from which every stakeholder can benefit and also be happy to contribute to its growth.
“It is important to prioritize grassroots football and youth development, and that we will take to heart. It is also important to win trophies, and both can go side-by-side. Winning trophies is good for our country’s image in the international sphere and also helps to motivate the upcoming stars at the grassroots level.”
