Elections into the local councils of the Ondo State Football Association (FA) could not hold yesterday as scheduled, following an order of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

The FA had during its emergency congress on Friday fixed June 11 and June 18 for the local and state elections.

However, an aggrieved faction of the state FA congress, led by the FA board’s Vice-Chairman, Dele Ologbese had asked the NFF through a letter to protest to stay actions on the election.

It described the emergency congress convened by the Chairman, Dele Ajayi, as a flagrant violation of statutes and electoral regulations.

But the NFF, in a letter last Monday signed by Joshua Onoja for the federation’s General Secretary, Mohammed Sanusi, had asked the FA to hold on on the elections.

It went on to ask Ajayi to respond to allegations levelled against him by six members of the state FA board.

He however said the association and those being accused would respond to the letter very soon.
