Newly elected Nigeria Football Federation board member Aisha Falode has described the electioneering process as a tough one.
Falode emerged as the South-South representative on the board of the NFF headed by Ibrahim Musa Gusau at the elections held in Benin City on Friday.
Falode said, “My election as a South-South representative on the board of the NFF was not an easy one, going by the activities of the zone.
“But after the very difficult electioneering process, with the support of all those who voted for me, i made it into the Executive Committee of the NFF.
“To show how difficult and tough it was, I didn’t even know I won.
"But I thank God for everything, for making my dream come true, and for stepping up as desired in the NFF.”
Falode, who is also the Chairperson of the Nigeria Women’s Football League, reserved special praise for Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki and his Deputy Philip Shaibu for their support to the NWFL.
“Their wonderful contributions gave the NWFL the leverage it has today, right from the first time in 2017 when the state hosted the first NWFL Super Six in Benin City when I resumed office as the chairperson of the NWFL and a board member of the NFF."
The newly elected NFF board led by Ibrahim Musa Gusau will steer the affairs of Nigerian football for the next four years.
