A seasoned Sports Administrator and former national team attacker, chief Adokiye Amesimaka has called for a total restructuring of Nigerian football in the face of the current crisis rocking the Nigerian Football Federation.

FIFA suspended Nigeria from international football on Wednesday due to what it termed government interference in the running of the Federation.

However, Amesimaka who believes that government should not succumb to corruption says the restructuring is long overdue.

“On no account should government succumb to blackmail for any thought, not from FIFA, not from Maigari, if FIFA disregards lawful actions and insists on suspension, so be it,” Adokiye told

“Let Nigerians be bold enough to say, FIFA to hell with you. Who knows, it may even be the impetus for us to restructure our football as far as I am concerned because it is overdue for restructuring,” He added.

Amiesimaka also believes that football will continue to exist in the country no matter what.

“The sun will continue to shine; there will still be night and day. There will be sunrise and sunset even if we don’t play football for two years, I tell you nothing will happen,” he said.

Meanwhile a delegation led by Bolaji Ojo Oba is in Brazil to hold talks with FIFA concerning the suspension melted to the football house.
