The appeal panel of world football body, FIFA, has ended Amos Adamu's quest to remain in football administration by ruling that the disgraced Nigerian must serve his three-year ban Huhuonline.com has learnt. This decision means that the disgraced Nigerian administrator has been booted out of the FIfA's Executive Committee as he will not be able to stand for re-election which is expected to hold this month in Sudan .

    It was learnt that FIfA appeals Board rejected Adamu's quest to return to football after a two-day hearing.

  The Appeals Board further insisted that he will be out of the game for three years.

  A source within FIfA was quoted as saying: 'The case is over and Dr. Amos Adamu will serve the three year ban.

  'Some others in the case have had their bans reduced by one year.'

  With this development, Ibrahim Galadima would now represent Nigeria in the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) elections later this month in Sudan where Africa 's representatives on FIfA's board would be made known.

  Adamu was banned from all FIFA duties for three years after a video showing him requesting $800,000 to build four artificial soccer pitches in Nigeria , and for the money to be paid to him directly was published by The Sunday Times.
