Segun Odegbami and Sunday Oliseh have been listed among the 17 people named in the committee constituted by the sports ministry to map out a 10-year football development plan.


The committee formation became necessary after President Muhammadu Buhari had in June charged Amaju Pinnick, president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), to provide a “master plan” in line with FIFA’s commitment to the development of sports in the country.

The committee was unveiled at a meeting between Buhari and Gianni Infantino, FIFA president, at Aso Rock in Abuja on Thursday.

The committee list, which was released by Sunday Dare, minister of youths and sports development, includes four former Nigerian internationals as well as football administrators, business entrepreneurs, and journalists.


Odegbami and Oliseh were joined by Adokiye Amiesimaka, former Green Eagles winger, alongside Emmanuel Babayaro, former Nigerian goalkeeper.

Former honchos at the NFF who made the list are Ibrahim Galadima, former chairman; Tony Nnachetta and Musa Amadu, former secretaries, with Muhammed Sanusi, the current secretary, also included.

The business entrepreneurs and journalists included in the committee are Yemi Idowu, Muhammad Faruk, Ogbu Ojiabor, Tobechukwu Okigbo, Ayo Omidiran, Bode Durotoye, John Opubor, Ikeddy Isiguzo, and Ade Ojeikere.


The ministry stated that the date and venue of the inauguration, terms of reference, and other relevant information will be communicated to the committee members in due course.
