"We are doing what we need to do as a federation.We can not pretend as if there is no problem, we keep talking about interference, we've had several issues in the court and judgements have been given in our favour that Ibrahim Shehu Gusau remain the substansive president of the AFN and Sunday Adeleye also it's technical director".



The AFN Technical director noted that the federation has done enough to put the house in order and confirmed that they have tried severally to meet with the Honourable Sports Minister.
