The plundering of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) treasury has continued unabated by the unholy combination of Amaju Pinnick and Shehu Dikko.
They are Machiavellian in the art of money laundering, diversion and outright stealing by proxy.
Pinnick himself perfected these “skills” from his days as chairman of the Delta State Sports Commission.
Pinnick and Shehu Dikko have done this in conjunction with their trusted aides who are so loyal to the extent of volunteering to go to jail if need be for their masters.
But the pair became clever by half despite this sophisticated network in shielding and extricating themselves from prosecution.
That was why they went on a wild goose chase in trying to compromise all sectors involved in their case, from top government functionaries, to the anti-graft agencies, judicial officers and the complainants themselves.
Shehu Dikko-owned Mediterranean Sports Limited and Financial Derivatives owned by Amaju Pinnick’s relation have become the trump cards for diverting millions of Naira and dollars meant for football development in Nigeria.
Financial Derivatives warehouses the funds, while the role of Shehu Dikko’s Mediterranean Sports Limited is to ferry and divert such funds to the destination instructed by Pinnick for sharing.
We attach for your attention two letters dated same 9th of April 2018 addressed to the chairman of Financial Derivatives both signed by Sanusi Mohammed NFF general secretary at the instance of Amaju Pinnick instructing the payment of 18,330,000 and 10,000,000 to Shehu Dikko’s Mediterranean Sports Limited.
This trend is hoped to be a permanent feature in NFF whether or not Pinnick’s third term ambition is realized or his crowned prince Shehu Dikko takes over.
This is having being drowned in the figment of their imagination that Pinnick will take over as CAF president from Ahmad Ahmad.
So, who is creating the toxic environment in Nigeria football?
NANF or Pinnick and Shehu Dikko?
This series is from the stable of the National Association of Nigeria Footballers (NANF).
