Sanni Lulu, Ex NFF Boss Picks Form for Kogi Guber Race

‘I’d fight corruption like Buhari’ — ex-NFF president challenges Yahaya Bello for guber ticket

Former president of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), Sanni Lulu Abdulahi  Thursday picked  the All Progressive Congress governorship form at the APC national secretariat in Abuja for the November governorship election in Kogi state

Abdulahi who survived eight years of judiciary battle, after the Appeal Court in Abuja cleared him of any complicity or wrongdoing in the N2.2 billion corruption charges leveled against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in November 2018, said he will pursue a policy of zero tolerance to corruption if he becomes governor of Kogi State.

In an interaction with journalists at the party  Secretariat, the former NFF boss maintained that his tenure at the Football House was very successful explaining that he  inherited a N300 million debt, but left the federation richer to the tune of N2.8 billion when he left office four years later.

“We are going to do our job to give our best to Kogites but to also process that we have a platform that we can use in Kogi state to support the zero tolerance for corruption like Mr president is doing,” Lulu said.

“That was why possibly they saw from a deficit of 300million naira I saw in the account and I was able to raise money to up to N2.8 billion.

“I now know that the people want me to give my best just like I have done in where I have worked before. As a director of sports, as a president of the Nigeria Football Federation, where I was so transparently representing their interest and accounting for every bit of resources that I had.

“It is difficult to see such thing happening in any Organisation. So, I want to believe Kogi people have interest in what I have done because of the great work I have done.”

The APC primaries for November governorship election hold on August 29 where Abdulahi and other aspirants will be pitched against the incumbent, Yahaya Bello
