Minister of Youths and Sports Development, Solomon Dalung says Nigeria will not be scared by the world football governing body FIFA.

The Minister said since Nigeria is a sovereign state, they will not bow to pressures from FIFA.

Earlier in the week FIFA issued Nigeria with an ultimatum stating that they have until 20th August to restore and recognize Amaju Pinnick as the legitimate president of the NFF, or face a ban.

Dalung was adamant that FIFA had been fed with incorrect information and he stressed that FIFA should treat national governing bodies in Africa with more respect.
