In a statement signed by the chairman of the NFF electoral committee Mohammed Sani Katu, a contestant in the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) presidential election, Aminu Maigari, has been accused of certificate forgery.
The clearance issued to Maigari to vie for NFF presidency has been consequently withdrawn and substituted with a “provisional clearance”, adding that there are discrepancies in the certificates submitted by Maigari.
Katu revealed that the committee received two petitions against Maigari, and further said that the petitions, filed by Chuma Onye and Ahmed Shuaibu Gara Gombe, are dated September 14 and September 17 respectively.
Consequent upon receipt of the petitions, the electoral committee said it asked Maigari to defend himself by producing original documents of the Grade Three certificates that he submitted.
“However, as at the 18th of September, 2018, Alhaji Aminu Maigari failed to produce the original document,” Katu said.
