Maigari Condoles With SAFA Boss On Mandela

President of Nigeria Football Federation, Alhaji Aminu Maigari, has commiserated with his South African counterpart, Dr. Danny Jordaan over the passing of former South African President and world statesman, Dr. Nelson Mandela.
Mandela, who died on the eve of the Final Draw of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Salvador, Brazil last week, has been remembered by world leaders from far and near and has been variously described as one of the world’s truly adorable figures.
In his letter of condolence to President of South African Football Association, Dr. Jordaan, Maigari pointed out that Dr. Mandela inspired billions of people all over the world with his story and would forever be remembered across several sectors of human endeavour.
“The Nigeria Football Federation and the entire Nigeria football
family grieve with you and the football family of the Republic of
South Africa on the demise of a truly remarkable figure, who left
gigantic footprints in politics and sport, and indeed other areas of human endeavour…”, wrote Maigari.
Jordaan, a former parliamentarian and university lecturer from Port Elizabeth, was himself an activist in the anti-apartheid era and was quite close to the late Madiba.
