FIFA have confirmed  the reinstatement of the Aminu Maigari-led Nigeria Football Federation board as manager of the affairs of Nigerian football. 

A power struggle ensued between some of Nigeria's top administrators, in the aftermath of the Super Eagles' dismissal in the round of 16 at the World Cup.

The world football governing body immediately suspended the NFF, raising concerns over the Ministry of Sports' influence in the clash between the country's football head honchos.

FIFA have since lifted the ban, which was confirmed in a letter address to Maigari and signed by FIFA general secretary Jerome Valcke.

"Since the conditions set by the FIFA Emergency Committee on 9 July, 2014 have been met, the suspension of the Nigeria Football Federation is lifted with immediate effect," detailed the letter.

"The lifting of the suspension means that all of NFF's membership rights have been reinstated, as defined in art. 12 of FIFA Statutes.

"The NFF is therefore entitled to take part again in international competitions and to benefit from all programs which were suspended."
