Match fixing is a misconduct and its against professional ethics.He can't deny the fact that there's punishment for all cases of misconduct.  Maybe an opportunity will be open for appeal later

It's quite simple, life has rules and so do fifa. If he was found guilty of accepting bribe which is against football ethics, then I feel he deserves it because he stands in a better position to know how bad that is

It's a welcome development because it will help to deal with others intending to get involved in unethical practices.

The football governing body had conducted investigation and found out he his guilty of the offence. So, I think he deserves it. This will also signal warning to others that will want to participate in this act.

Banning him for life is actually too harsh. He should be banned and restored after a while so as to serve as waeniwato all who are in such act.

That's bad and it's a shame on his profession 

He should know that such a thing brings bad name to the nation and negative assumptions of the country by foreigners...

Its a big blow on Nigeria football but match fixing is a misconduct and its against professional ethics. He can't deny the fact that there's punishment for all cases of misconduct.  Let him appeal and see if the fine can be cancel because that a very big money

That is a very bad one to us in Nigeria. Come to think of it what proof do they have because I know match manipulation is mainly from Estonia and not Nigerians

No at all, the judgement seem to be harsh, they should have charge him to court, either to forfeit the his position or remit the said amount which he is allegedly being acuse of. Or in the other way round, suspend him for some tune of time.

I think racism is involved in this. There are people who have done worse than he is accused of and they were not punished as much.

The question as to whether he deserve it or not is a very difficult question to answer. But if he is guilty of it, he should go in for. He has only proven that we, Nigerians, are corrupt.

It's so sad for Nigeria football administration.We try to get to top positions only to go rub mud on our faces. It's a good punishment for the offence, and if he thinks he's innocent, he can call for an appeal or take his case to CAS.

With the level of his offence and violation of the FIFA ethics if the penalty for his crime would be a ban from all football activities then it would be a proper judgement if not the ban complemented with the fine would just be too extreme for him
