A statement issued in Abuja on Sunday by NFF’s
Assistant Director of Communications, Ademola
Olajire, said that the visit was a fall-out of NFF
President, Amaju Pinnick’s recent meeting with
Infantino in Mexico.

The statement said that during the visit, the
FIFA president would visit President
Muhammadu Buhari and also attend the final of
the NFF/ZENITH Bank Future Eagles
Championship.

“He will also have an evening with Corporate
Nigeria and as well as have an interactive
session with a horde of African FA Presidents
who will also be in Nigeria to receive him,’’ it
said.

It added that Infantino believed that Nigeria was
a big country and a massive football-playing
nation that should help with the new FIFA
leadership’s drive to truly develop the game.

Infantino assumed office as head of world’s
football governing body after winning election at
an extraordinary general congress in Zurich on
Feb. 26, 2016.
