FIFA has now found Nigerian Amos Adamu guilty of trying to sell his vote for the world cup bid.
I discussed this briefly in a recent post here on this blog .
The guy has been suspended for 3 years.
I should think that the evidence against him were convincing to Fifa Ethics committee. Adamu was caught on camera and I hope he stops pushing the case himself because the video may end up on YouTube.
My concern here is the way Adamu’s image has been splashed on all the major newspapers around the world and how once again the rebranding of Nigeria has been rubbished.
This is what you get when you cannot clean your house and going ahead to trying to clean the streets.
Adamu’s shameful and disgraceful involvement in this scandal is both a reflection and a boomerang of the Nigerian civil service where everything revolves around corruption, settlements and unimaginable acceptable codes of conducts.
Just last week roads were commissioned in Ikenne Ogun State in Nigeria by Goodluck Jonathan. There are reports that the roads already have pot holes. In less than one week!
It shows that the governor of the state is corrupt and the man who left Abuja to Ikenne to commission a bad road is…?
And for the past 6 days there has not been electricity in Ikenne.
This is Adamu’s background, a society founded on rot and gross ineptitude.
He should use the last pride and dignity in him to vacate FIFA and sport altogether. But No, not in Nigeria.
I will NEVER be surprised if he is rewarded in Nigeria with the position of the Sports Minister. Nigeria has several ways of rewarding stupidity and corruption.
Unless something unthinkable happens, this case is nothing to Nigeria and the further elevation of Adamu nationally is around the corner.
You must love my country of birth.
