As Nigerian referees undergo the first FIFA fitness test of the year in Abuja, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) says they are doing everything possible to take match officiating to another level.


In a bid to ensure football in Nigeria is devoid of any form of match-fixing or manipulation, the NFF has mandated its Integrity Unit headed Dr. Christian Emeruwa, to lecture Nigerian referees on FIFA integrity guidelines as it relates to football.

The NFF Executive Committee had last December approved the Integrity Strategy Guidelines for every aspect of the game in the country, which has seen even coaches and match commissioners being lectured on the things that violate the integrity of the game.


All referees in Nigeria are expected to be lectured by Dr. Christian Emeruwa.
