Leading Chairmanship aspirant in the forthcoming Nasarawa State FA election, Haliru Ibrahim Zee has declared that the aspirants to the various positions on the board will not accept delegates handpicked by the outgoing chairman, Mohammed Alkali.

Ibrahim accused the outgoing chairman of working assiduously to ensure that he is returned unopposed to the position and has therefore jettisoned the authentic list of delegates that voted in the previous election and replaced it with some names that are not known in the football family.

He noted that the delegates to the previous election are intact except one who died recently and has since been replaced by the Local Government Area however the outgoing chairman did not include his name in the purported list.

“We are not sleeping. We know all the antics of Alkali and his cohorts to stay put. He has displayed gross insincerity in the electioneering process all in a bid to return unopposed but we will not accept that, we will match him in every way possible.”

The seasoned match commissioner further noted that some of Alkali’s antics are disqualifying him and the eight others then handpick delegates who will rubber stamp his already programmed declaration as the winner even when no election will be conducted.

Ibrahim disclosed that the outgoing chairman has been bragging that he has the backing of the NFF top shots and that the federation will send officials that will help him actualise the inordinate ambitions as observers to the election.

Ibrahim said even as he knows that the boastings are empty, the NFF should not allow itself to be rubbished by Alkali.

He warned that the good people of Nasarawa State football family have rejected him which is the reason he is employing every means that could help him actualise his inordinate ambitions, adding “we will resist all”.

The former two time Vice Chairman of Nasarawa State FA maintained that their people want development of the game in the state and not mere occupation of the seat without anything happening from the local government areas to the state.

Meanwhile, Ibrahim and the other aspirants purportedly disqualified from the election are yet to receive reply to their petitions to the NFF against the illegal steps taken by the outgoing chairman.
