Giwa says he will receive Fifa President, not Pinnick

15 July 2016, 16:31Tony Smart

Abuja - Factional President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Chris Giwa, has said he will be the one to welcome president of world football governing body, FIFA, Gianni Infantino, when he arrives Nigeria July 24th.

Giwa said this at the inauguration of board members of the various Nigerian leagues in Abuja on Thursday.

“The issue of who invites or who did not invite the FIFA president does not arise. All we are waiting for is to receive him if he is coming into our country; we are people that abide by the rule of law and constitution. I am sure that the FIFA president also believes in the constitution of his own country and the constitution of FIFA too. So, once he comes in, the man known by the laws of the land should be the one to receive him,” he said.

News24 previously reported that the FIFA President Gianni Infantino and the Secretary General, Fatma Samoura will both arrive Nigeria on July 24 on a two–day working visit.

The Italian-Swiss, who was elected FIFA President at an extraordinary general assembly in Zurich on 26th February 2016, confirmed the trip following a meeting with NFF President Amaju Pinnick in Paris, France on Sunday.
