Giwa, Pinnick in plots to take control of NFF



Giwa, Pinnick in plots to take control of NFF

Security has been beefed up at the football secretariats and its environs as the board and Congress of the Nigeria Football Federation meets today to place a lengthy ban on the self-acclaimed NFF factional leader Chris Giwa and his group.

The Giwa camp are also not lying low as they are also strategizing to have access to the venue of the NFF congress as well as a video tape of the event which they hope to tender as evidence in court as contempt after the Jos federal high court has equally disbanded the congress.

Ripples Nigeria scooped that most of the State FA Chairmen and their Secretaries will meet at an undisclosed venue to decide the way forward on the current leadership tussle that is rocking football in the country with most of the stakeholders favourably disposed to placing a hefty sanction on Giwa.

The Giwa group last Friday got the court to re-list their case against the NFF leadership, which they had suspended two years ago.

They argued they returned to the court after last year’s AGM in Abuja barred other stakeholders besides past and present congress delegates from vying for elective offices.

The move by Giwa necessitated a warning from world soccer ruling body, FIFA, and Nigeria may be banned football from world football if the case is not taken out of the civil court.
