Jos - A Federal High Court sitting in Jos on
Wednesday adjourned the case filed by Chris Giwa to relist his case
against Amaju Pinnick, President, Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), to
March 10, 2016.
The media, recalls that Giwa had approached
the court to declare him the President of the NFF and, the election of
August 26, 2014 that brought him, be upheld.
The case was withdrawn following pressures from major football
stakeholders and threat by the Federation of International Football
Association (FIFA), to sanction the country.

appear in the next hearing.
