The council chairman, Jalingo local government council of Taraba State, Abdulnaseer Bobboji has described as “unhealthy” the ongoing wrangling in the state Football Association (FA).

The wrangling caused by a leadership tussle has factionalized the state FA while warring factions have dragged themselves before a federal High court in Jalingo.

The crisis has, however, begun to rub off negatively on football activities in the state, analysts claim.

Bobboji who decried the situation on Monday in his office, said the council on its path, would harness all relevant efforts to reconcile the parties.

He said for that to be achieved, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) must wade into the matter.

He stressed the council’s readiness to join hands with members of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) at both the state and the national level to bring an end to the skirmishes threatening sports in the state.

”All lovers of the round leather games especially those in the position of authority should as a matter of urgency engage the warring parties in a round table dialogue”, he suggested.

Also not comfortable with the development, the Deputy Nation President of SWAN, Abubakar Moyoyo lamented that the ongoing crisis has continued to deny the state some opportunities at the national level.

Moyoyo who was in the state to present an award on the chairman of the northeast chapter of SWAN, called on the two groups to bury their hatchets and embrace peace.

The state SWAN chairman, Joehakiam Dangaga, who narrated how the upheavals have been hindering members of SWAN from functioning effectively, beckoned on stakeholders to mount pressures on the two factions to allow the sleeping dog lie.
