Sangyen recalled that the Plateau State Football Association Congress and stakeholders had on the 8th, August, 2014, passed a vote of no
confidence on Mr. Longbap, adding that the NFF was communicated, and it acknowledged to have received the decision of the congress via a letter
dated 13th, August, 2014.
“The impeached Chairman, Mr. Sunday Longbap acting alone, constituted the Electoral Committee, the Appeal Committee as well as the 24 man
list of delegates instead of 22 into the State FA election. The group lamented.

their respective LGAs nor stakeholders.
The list of LG FA Chairmen substituted are Shendam, Bassa, Mangu, Mikang, Jos South, Jos East, Kanke, Barkin Ladi and Wase LGAs.

The FA Chairmen urged the Nigerian Football Association not to honour any purported election emanating from the State and called on the public
and sport enthusiast to disregard any purported election, saying fresh election will soon be conducted.
It would be recalled that the embattled Chairman of Plateau Football Association, Mr. Sunday Longbap was re-elected as Chairman of the Football
Association last week.
