Again, FIFA Ban Adamu For Two Years

The world governing body FIFA has banned Nigeria’s former football official Amos Adamu was on Tuesday  for ethics violations.

Adamu, a former FIFA executive committee member and West African Football Union president, cannot take part in any “football-related activity at national and international level” for the next two years, FIFA said in a statement.

The sanction is effective from February 28

Adamu, 62, was previosuly banned in 2010 for three years for bribery. He lost all his exotic positions in football administration.

Adamu’s ban in 2010 followed an undercover sting by The Sunday Times that caught him and fellow ExCo member, Reynald Temarii selling their support ahead of the votes on which country should host the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

An investigation into Adamu was opened on March 9, 2015. A final report was passed to FIFA’s adjudicatory chamber last December recommending a sanction, after which ethics committee chairman Hans-Joachim Eckert decided to open proceedings. FIFA said on Tuesday that “through his involvement in the organisation of an event in 2010, while being a member of the (then) FIFA Executive Committee, Mr Adamu violated … the FIFA Code of Ethics”. World football’s governing body has been in turmoil since last year due to a number of corruption scandals, including that of a two million Swiss franc payment made by former president Sepp Blatter to ex-UEFA supremo Michel Platini that saw both men banned from the game.
