In a release sent to Bestchoicesports.com.ng, Mr Jalla also alleged that the setting up of the committee was anoth mechanism by the NFF to manipulate the system and enthrone their cronies in the State FA leadership.
“I have stated in several of my Series that those running our football today came to steal, kill and destroy our football.
“The recklessness with which they handle the finances of the NFF and gross ineptitude they have exhibited in the management of Nigeria football is a clear indication of my assertion that the current set of leaders we have in our football only came to plunder our football treasury. They have gone berserk and have started violating their own rules.
“The NFF statutes itself says their affiliates are independent to conduct their own affairs. This is even corroborated by FIFA statutes. FIFA does not conduct elections for its affiliates or interfere in their internal affairs.
“This current set of incompetent NFF officials are all over the states of the federation manipulating states Football Association Elections and fixing their cronies as state F.A chairmen to continue their looting spree of our football treasury. This manipulation cannot succeed in Delta State.
“As a football stakeholder I will fight the NFF to logical conclusion in their evil machinations to set up a normalization committee to run the Delta state F.A I want to see what has been giving top officials of the NFF the confidence that they can do anything and get away with it.
“These are football officials facing prosecution in court for alleged corruption. Some of them have been convicted by courts of competent Jurisdiction .yet they defy the law and parade themselves .
“I can assure the NFF that they have chosen the wrong state to exhibit their draconian disposition in running Nigeria football with Impunity, he said.
