Crisis as Chris Giwa challenges Amaju Pinnick’s election again

23 December 2015, 15:06

Abuja - Nigerian football may be thrown into yet another crisis if recent events are anything to go by, as the Chris Giwa board, which was supposedly elected on August 26, 2014, has declared the Amaju Pinnick board, elected on September 30, 2014, as illegal.

Speaking after their board meeting on Tuesday, counsel to Chris Giwa, Habila Hassan said there is a subsisting court order barring the congress of the Nigeria Football Federation from conducting the September 30, 2014 elections, which brought forth the Pinnick led executive committee of the NFF which presently runs Nigerian football.

“The Chris Giwa board was elected on the 26th of August 2014 and were duly sworn in, but unfortunately, a certain group purported to have been elected on the 30th day of September 2014 to the same office and has been purportedly operating as the executive committee of the Nigeria Football Federation,” he told Hot FM.

“We challenged the conduct of the election that purportedly brought in this purported executive committee of the NFF, which was purportedly elected on the 30th of September last year.

“The federal high court in Jos, granted an order of interim injunction restraining the conduct of that election which held on the 30th of September 2014 but in disobedience of that order, that election held and subsequently, the federal high court nullified the conduct of that election,” he said.
