The management and officials of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, will undergo coronavirus tests, Thursday, after a member of the management team was confirmed to be infected with the virus.
General Secretary of the Federation, Mohammed Sanusi, who announced the development said most of the officials have had contact with one another in the past weeks and it is necessary to test everyone for the infection.
“Apart from him testing positive, I also had issues and had to go for tests when I was feeling ill and uncomfortable. But the truth is most of us have had contact with one another over the days, thus it is important we do the tests,” he said.
“I want to appreciate the Federal Government immensely for their efforts so far to contain the pandemic, and also officials of the Nigeria Centre for Disease and Control for agreeing to come to the NFF offices to conduct the tests.
After the tests, the offices and the entire complex will be disinfected in line with the protocols of the COVID-19, while employees will work from home until their test results are ready.
