Nigerian football administrators are no longer the local champions they used to be as they are spreading their tentacles into the international football politics and administration with great pace. 

The latest to climb the ladder is the NFF 2nd Vice President/LMC Chairman Shehu Dikko who is quite elated following his induction into the FIFA Football Stakeholders Committee.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino performed the induction alongside the Chairman of the committee, Victor Montagliani, who is also President of CONCACAF and also a FIFA Vice President.

Infantino presented Dikko, also the Chairman of Marketing, Sponsorship and TV Rights Committee and Strategic Studies Committee of the NFF, with the special FIFA pin before the 3rd meeting of the FIFA Football Stakeholders Committee.

Dikko was named into the FIFA Football Stakeholders Committee in November 2017. He is also a Member of the CAF Committee for Club Competitions and Club Licensing System.
