Mr Mohammed Sanusi on Thursday assumed duty as the new Secretary General of the Nigeria Football Association (NFA).
Sanusi, who was the NFA Director of Competitions until his latest appointment, took over from Musa Amadu, who resigned from the position on Wednesday.
Amadu’s letter of resignation dated March 18 and addressed to the NFA Chairman said his resignation took immediate effect.
“I thank the chairman, board members and everyone at the NFA for the singular honour of serving our great country in this position. I wish you and the NFA the very best in the years ahead,” Amadu said in the letter.”
In another separate letter, to NFA secretariat staff Amadu, expressed appreciation for the good working relationship he had with them.
“I also want to use this opportunity to plead for forgiveness from those I might have consciously or unconsciously offended during my term as Secretary-General of the NFA. The appeal extends to the period I served as Deputy Secretary-General (General Services) of the NFA between March 2007 and July 2010.
“As I take my leave as Secretary-General of NFA, I wish you all the very best in the task of taking Nigeria football to new heights. I also urge you to afford the NFA chairman, board members and management, your full co-operation and loyalty in order that Nigeria football can witness even greater glory.
“Whatever accomplishments recorded during my tenure were achieved with the full support of the board members, management and staff. I move on with the conviction that you all will work harder with the new dispensation to record more glorious moments,’’ the letter read.
