This return to normality, as indicated in the correspondence from the President of the Nigerian federation to FIFA in a letter of 8th September, 2014, has been noted together with the reinstatement and return to work at the association headquarters in Abuja of the NFF president and staff to work without hindrance.
The Secretary General of FIFA also noted that people who claimed to have been elected to preside over the affairs of the Nigerian federation evacuated the premises of the institution.
However, the correspondence of the Secretary General of FIFA is accompanied by recommendations including the need for the urgent holding of an Executive Committee and a General Assembly of the NFF and defining and adopting the roadmap for NFF elections as soon as possible. These should all be done be in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Nigerian federation. FIFA further cautioned that should the electoral process be affected by any interference or occurrence of any mishap, the case would be referred again – and without prior notice or warning – to the appropriate FIFA bodies for immediate suspension of the NFF until the next FIFA Congress.
