Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Wednesday met with Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung,  behind closed doors at the Presidential Villa.

The meeting started at 4.20p.m shortly after Dalung arrived the acting president’s office after  the meeting of the Federal Executive Council.

Although the reason for the meeting was not made known, it might not be unconnected with the threat by world football ruling body, FIFA, to sanction Nigeria over government interference.

Earlier on Wednesday, President of the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF, Amaju Pinnick, led three officials of the federation to a meeting with the Acting President in his office before commencement of the Federal Executive Council meeting.
