The Supreme Court will Thursday deliver its ruling on the leadership crisis facing the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF. The tussle is between Christopher Giwa and NFF’s current president, Amaju Pinnick. Earlier rulings by the Court of Appeal and the Federal High Court affirmed Pinnick’s election.
Giwa is contending that his election as NFF president in 2013, which was nullified for falling short of FIFA statues, is still valid. He is seeking the nullification of Pinnick’s election as NFF chairman, which held in 2014.
More so, Giwa also challenged Pinnick’s election at the Court of Arbitration for Sport, CAS, but like in the regular courts he equally lost the case. Following the ruling in 2016, FIFA slammed a ban on Giwa from participating in any football affair.
