Accusations of corruption in the highest levels of international Football, Sepp Blatter remains unshaken. His support across Asia and Africa has cemented his position as the top representative of FIFA despite 14 of its executives have been accused of fraud and graft.
According to Nigerian Football Federation newly-elected president Amaju Pinnick, “Blatter feels Africa.”
“He sees Africa and he has imparted so much – a lot of developmental programmes.
“Without Blatter we wouldn’t enjoy all the benefits we enjoy today from Fifa. What Blatter pushes is equity, fairness and equality among the nations. We don’t want to experiment.”
Almost every FIFA project that had guaranteed good economic returns for every community in the world had been under Sepp Blatter. Chad, one of the most underdeveloped areas of Africa, had earned 26 projects from FIFA with technical centres, a headquarters in Africa that holds seminars about refereeing and everything else about football.
Blatter had also pushed the funding in every football nation with a project under his name, which garnered him huge amounts of support despite the FIFA’s biggest crisis yet.
