Formal Super Eagles player turned pastor, Taribo West has announced plans to start a protest within the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, and its affairs over corruption.
According to him, just as the #EndSARS protest called for reform of the Nigeria Police Force, NPF, the protest against Nigeria’s football governing body is intended to put an end to the corruption within the system.
Taribo West told The Punch;
“We are going to protest against those that have hijacked our football system,”
“Everything happening #EndSARS in the Nigerian system must also affect the football house. People with integrity must run the football house because money that has been siphoned, embezzled & mismanaged can’t be quantified.
“Work of God is in my spirit, but football is in my blood. I’ll lead a protest against the mismanagement of funds in Nigerian football.”
