Ekiti State Football Association has lifted the suspension placed on some of its members.
The seven individuals who are members of various Ekiti FA components were suspended indefinitely last December during the 2022 Annual General Assembly over allegations of gross violation of the provisions of the Statutes and other extant laws governing football.
However, the Executive Committee of the Ekiti FA waived the suspension yesterday (3rd March) at a Board meeting held in Ado Ekiti.
According to the communique of the meeting released by the Ekiti FA Secretary, Pelumi Abiara, the Board, “Resolved to lift the suspension meted out to erring members of the association following successful appeals and interventions.”
The release also revealed that Monday 20th, March 2023 has been scheduled for an Extra Ordinary General Assembly of the Ekiti FA congress “to choose a date for an Elective Congress to elect the new leadership of the Ekiti FA as the administration of the current Board draws to a close.”
Also at the meeting, the Ekiti FA Board led by Mr. Bayo Olanlege promised that it will work passionately until their last day in office, empowering Ekiti youths using football as a veritable tool.
