NFF says Giwa and group lose again

31 October 2016, 21:22

Abuja - The Supreme Court on Monday struck out two motions by Chris Giwa and his group seeking to stay the execution of the ruling of the Court of Appeal baring one Mr. Oba Maduabuchi from appearing before it on behalf of Giwa and his group, and the judgement of the same court vacating the orders of the Federal High Court re-listing the case and restoring the orders, the NFF claimed.

Giwa, proprietor of Giwa FC of Jos, has been in and out of court against Nigeria football in the past 28 months, sustaining his quest even after a celebrated loss at the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, Switzerland.

On Monday, Justices at Nigeria’s highest court were of the view that the said Oba Maduabuchi cannot appear in the case until the ruling of the Court of Appeal refusing him audience is vacated.

Giwa’s lawyers immediately saw the futility of the twin applications and withdrew same, and the Supreme Court promptly struck out both applications.

Giwa and a member of his group, Yahaya Adama, were both in court on Monday when the Supreme Court made the ruling.

It would be recalled that on Monday, 25th July 2016, the Court of Appeal, Jos Judicial Division, had thrown out Giwa’s case, vacating the order of the Federal High Court of the same division that re-listed the case and restored earlier orders.

News24 reported that the League Management Company (LMC) appealed the Plateau State High Court’s order asking it to reinstate Giwa FC to the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
