The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has concluded arrangements to install Video Assistant Referee (VAR) in regional stadiums in the country as plans are underway to train and retrain referees to achieve the purpose.
Malam Ibrahim Gusau, president of the NFF said this on Saturday in Ilorin at the National Elective Delegates Conference of the Nigeria Referees’ Association (NRA).
Gusau, represented by an NFF official, Malam Muhammed Ameenu, charged the incoming leadership of the association to come up with development plans, to forecast, organise and ensure the future of Nigeria Referees is properly nurtured and watered towards the growth of the game.
Reiterating the unflinching support of the NFF to the NRA in their quest to change the face of football in the country, Gusau said installation of VAR would aid the growth and development of football.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Malam Sani Zubair emerged winner after polling 53 votes from the 54 accredited delegates to beat Elder Daniel Olokor to replace Otunba Tade Azeez.
