Nigeria, Morocco move to strengthen football ties

President, Nigeria Football Federation, Ibrahim Gusau, has met the Ambassador of Morocco to Nigeria, Moha Ou Ali Tagma, in order to make more robust the cordial relationship between the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Kingdom of Morocco.

Gusau, in company with NFF 1st Vice President, Felix Anyansi-Agwu, and board members Margaret Icheen and Sharif Rabiu Inuwa, informed Tagma that the visit was both in appreciation of the co-operation that the NFF and Nigeria Football teams have received from the embassy in the past and in recognition of the great role that Morocco was playing in African football at the moment.

“We have just come in as new board of the NFF, and having served on the previous board and fully aware of the co-operation that Your Excellency and Mission Staff have afforded the NFF and Nigerian football over the years, and the need to foster stronger ties with Morocco, we have decided to come and explore the possibility of excellent partnership agreements that could benefit both countries in the long run.

“The accomplishments of Morocco in the area of infrastructure and organizational capacity cannot be over-emphasized. Anyone fully involved in African Football will appreciate the role that Morocco is playing at the present. As we speak, our Bayelsa Queens are playing in the CAF Women Champions League ongoing in Morocco. Our Super Falcons played in the Women AFCON there a few months ago and the Super Eagles played an AFCON qualifier there in June.”

“The FA president, Mr. Fouzi Lekjaa, is a friend and brother, and very passionate about the African game. The NFF will seek ties with Morocco that will ultimately benefit Nigeria Football in the area of development.”
