A well known sports medicine Physician had this to say
” What happened at the NWFL AGM where teams that didn’t qualify for promotion on the pitch via exant rules qualified via the board room would never have happened under Aisha Falode’ leadership.
It would simply never have happened. It doesn’t matter who.

They tried it with her and failed and happily did it the moment she was out of office, even though she is indeed in a higher political role as a board member with the Nigeria Football Federation “.
