Will Sepp Blatter finally step down as the FIFA corruption allegations come to a boil with guilty pleas by officials? – Tola Adenle

May 27, 2015


May be now that six officials of this corruption-filled organization have reportedly entered guilty pleas and more to likely follow, just may be the world is finally near the end of perhaps the most corrupt sports body in the world. Corruption in Nigerian soccer federation and perceived acolytes of the FIFA president? Corruption in African soccer, or elsewhere for that matter? Sepp Blatter seems always named as giving more than a wink and a nod to controversial local officials who would rather sell their votes to the highest bidder than uphold ethics in sports administration in their various federations. Local elections – at least in Nigeria – have been known to be rigged in favor of certain individuals with the active knowledge of FIFA without any sanctions. On the other hand, these officials seem to wax stronger year after year, ascending the lucrative ladder of FIFA administration. Below is a link to one of the essays in which this blog has lent a voice to the need for Mr. Blatter to step down from FIFA
