Why we’re proposing 24–team AFCON --Pinnick

A Jos High Court will on Friday give ruling on whether the proprietor of Giwa FC, Chris Giwa can continue with the struggle to regain the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) presidential seat.

Giwa is contesting the elections that brought in current NFF boss, Amaju Pinnick, as illegal, null and void following a court order stopping it.

The case would have been heard during the tenure of President Goodluck Jonathan but the former President persuaded Giwa to sheath the swords with the conviction that he would be given another responsibility.

What however further re-ignited the new feud was the total hijack of the running of the Premier League by the present board with the 2nd Vice Chairman, Sheu Dikko also presiding over the League Management Company (LMC).

Giwa felt it is a case of reaping from where they did not sow.

Efforts by the current Youth and Sports Minister, Barrister Solomon Dalung to douse the issue almost resulted in a physical brawl between the two warring parties.
