#Nigeriaat55: Past Leaders Of The Nigerian Football Federation

As Nigeria celebrates her 55 independence anniversary today, Legit.ng sports takes you down memory lane to the past leaders of the footballing body from inception in 1945 till date.

Foreigners started to lead until Godfrey Amachree took over in 1960 as the first ever indigenous Chairman of the National footballing body known then as the Nigeria Football Association (NFA). The Football federation was founded in the year1945 by the colonial masters and chaired by Pa Mulford.

However, Sani Lulu Abdullahi changed the name of the organization from Nigeria football association (NFA), to the Nigeria football federation (NFF), and recently, the Nigerian Senate passed the bill after furor over the authenticity of the NFF as against the constitution which had earlier recognized it as NFA.

Some pictures could not be fetched as the administrators headed the organization at an analogue age.
