Speaking on former Technical Director, Ntiense Williams who was sacked last year, Mbagwu said, “We have received a letter from the Ministry of Sports to look into the matter and seek a way to resolve the issue. “But at this point, it should be brought to notice that Williams is an employee of NRFF and the body has the right to sack any of its staff found guilty of any misconduct. “Any issue regarding the former technical director will be discussed when the committee brings out its report. At this point Williams remains sacked,” he said.
