Director of Communications, Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Ademola Olajire, on Wednesday said that the core mandate of the newly elected management of the football house was to prioritize age-grade football and grassroots development.

Olajire said this while speaking with newsmen on the sidelines of the 9th Nigerian Pitch Awards news conference at Ikeja, Lagos State.

Olajire said the failure by the Super Eagles to qualify for the ongoing FIFA World Cup had left sour taste in the mouth of every football fan in Nigeria, including the NFF.

Olajire noted that the reason for the mandate of the new administration of NFF was to ensure that the national teams were built around locally sourced players.
