The Nigeria Football Federation has appointed Commissioner of Police Garba Umar Baba as senior security advisor. CP Garba Baba is currently the Commissioner of Police, Anambra State.
Commissioner of Police Baba is presently the Chairman of the Nigeria Police Football Association. He also served in ad-hoc capacity as Chairman of NFF Security Committee on the 2010 FIFA World Cup finals in South Africa and as Chief Detail of Team Nigeria to the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece.
He was also much involved with security arrangements for the Queens Baton Relay and the 2006 Commonwealth Games, as well as being a member of the Nigerian contingent to the World Police Games in Scotland.
The appointment, which is for two years, is one that the NFF believes will see CP Baba bringing his wealth of experience to bear in assisting the NFF security architecture in discharging its duties effectively.
