Mouktar Muhammed, FCT Football Association (FA) chairmanship candidate for June 20, 2019 FCT FA elections, has unveiled a three-point agenda that would form the thrust of his administration if elected.
Unveiling his agenda and plans to resuscitate the game of football in the FCT and make it a reference point in Africa during an interaction with the media in Abuja, yesterday, Muhammed said his administration will ensure football development at the grassroots and human capacity.
“For those who know me, my interest has been on youth development at the grassroots and I have produced many players that have won U-17 World Cup for Nigeria and went on to play for the Super Eagles.
“So, three-agenda is to develop football facilities at the grassroots and expand the scope of football development to all the six Area Councils in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) as well as to build human capacity and bring back strong competitive league system in FCT and make Abuja the real home of the Super Eagles,” he said.
Mouktar, who is a certified FIFA License player agent, said he would overhaul FCT FA governance and bring his connections to bear on football in FCT if given the mandate to lead the football association.
“I have been in football for twenty years and I developed many players like Macauley Chrisantus and Musa Muhammed.
“I came into this administration to contribute. I think I have something fresh and new idea to take the FCT FA to the next level in terms of creating platforms, thereby improving the facilities which are very deplorable at the moment. We want to bring sponsorships, and develop players who can play up to the Super Eagles level within the FCT area.”
Meanwhile, head of the elections, a group under the aegis of Movement for Change (MC) has kicked against the re-election plan of the incumbent chairman, Alhaji Musa Talle alleging that the fortunes of football in FCT has grossly dwindled under his watch.
The group alleged that football administration in the FCT under the incumbent has retarded to the extent that nobody can even point to where the office of the FA is located in Abuja in the last four years.
