Giwa versus NFF: Court adjourns hearing to March 10

11 February 2016, 11:19

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The case was withdrawn following pressures from major football stakeholders and threat by the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA), to sanction the country.

But Giwa, through his counsel, Habila Ardzard, filed a request that the case be relisted.

Counsel to NFF and the Ministry of Sports, Damon Dashe, filed an affidavit and requested for more time to prepare for the defense.

The defense counsel also requested for an adjournment to enable the lead counsel Festus Keyamo who was absent in court on Wednesday, to appear in the next hearing.

The judge, Justice Musa Kurya, accepted the request and adjourned the case to March 10 for hearing.
