Taribo West to lead protest against corruption in Nigerian football



Former Nigerian international, Taribo West, has announced his preparedness to lead a protest against Nigerian football authorities, saying it’s time for persons with integrity to helm the affairs of Nigeria’s football.

The ex-Super Eagles star’s comments is coming on the heels of #EndSARS protests, which calls for end to police brutality and reforms in the police sector.

The former Inter Milan defender believes such reforms should affect the Nigeria Football Federation, and he’s ready to lead a protest to see that happen.

West who believes corrupt officials run Nigeria’s football, said he is going to ensure such people are booted out.

“We are going to protest against those that have hijacked our football system,” Taribo told The Punch.

Everything happening #EndSARS in the Nigerian system must also affect the football house. ‘People with integrity must run the football house because money that has been siphoned, embezzled & mismanaged can’t be quantified.

“Work of God is in my spirit, but football is in my blood. I’ll lead a protest against the mismanagement of funds in Nigerian football,” the Atlanta Olympic gold medalist added.
