The Minister of Youth and Sports Solomon Dalung has called for an emergency meeting with the executive board members of the Nigeria Football Federation.
The meeting holds on Tuesday February the 28th at the National Stadium in Abuja.
The upcoming CAF elections will be discussed at the forum, among other issues.
NFF President Amaju PInnick had earlier declared his support for the Madagascar FA chief Ahmad Ahmad who is challenging the incumbent President Issa hayatou in March elections
But Dalung has said elections into CAF have a long tradition and Nigeria as a major actor has always taken a position that will promote interest of Africa and and its sub regional neighbours.
