Ogunjobi and Heman are now set to run for NFF election
Ayodeji Ogunjobi and Timothy Heman were given the go-ahead by the Nigeria Football Federation Appeals Committee on Sunday to run in the NFF elections, which had been postponed due to a court order even though the election was originally set for September 30.
Ogunjobi was barred for failing to provide proof of tax payment, according to a statement from the NFF, while Heman was disallowed for allegedly forging his certificate.
“The Committee found as a fact that during the screening exercise by the 2022 NFF Electoral Committee of 11th September 2022, the Appellant (Ogunjobi) was given the opportunity to produce evidence of payment of the tax clearance on or before Tuesday, September 13th, 2022.
“On Tuesday, September 13th, 2022, the Appellant sent the evidence of payment of tax clearance issued by Osun State Internal Revenue Service, dated September 12th, 2022, to the Secretariat of the 2022 NFF Electoral Committee, but the result of the screening exercise was released the same day,” the Appeals Committee said in a statement.
Following its conclusions, the Appeals Committee at last cleared Ogunjobi to run in the NFF elections.
