An Abuja-based club, Green Lock FC, has pledged its total support for the grassroots football development programs of the present Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) administration led by Alhaji Ibrahim Musa Gusau.


The club management made this pledge on Wednesday during a courtesy call to the NFF President in his office.

In his response, Gusau said the doors of the Federation will always be open to all individuals who are competent in their areas of jurisdiction to administer football in the right way, with particular emphasis on grassroots development, which is his administration’s cardinal pillar in ensuring that Nigeria Football attains much-desired heights in no distant future.

You are just starting, and I don’t want you to be deterred by anything because it has to be a gradual process. There are always challenges along the way when you start a new project but do not lose sight of your objective and vision. Allow your vision to guide you and help you overcome all hurdles and obstacles to attaining your goals.

The Executive Vice Chairman of Green Lock FC, Mr Olufunsho Peters, said he is impressed with what the Federation has achieved under the Gusau administration. He believes it is essential to identify and key into this project for the club’s growth.

We are here to identify with you, to key into your vision for grassroots football development. We are enamored by what you have been doing and how you have been setting Nigeria Football in a fresh and positive direction,” Peters stated.


Chief Coordinating Executive of Green Lock FC, Mr Olayinka Oladunjoye, also thumbed up the Gusau administration and admitted that identifying with the Federation is the best way for the club to progress.


“We are not just here to show our faces to you, but we truly want to identify with you and your vision for Nigeria Football, and we want to be part of your dream to change the football narrative in the country,” Oladunjoye said.

Also present during the visit were NFF General Secretary Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, NFF Director of Communications Ademola Olajire, and special assistant to NFF President Abubakar Barde.
