FIFA To Decide On Nigeria Football Crisis Today

By on

World football governing body, FIFA will on Tuesday (today) take a decision on the crisis rocking the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

This follows a formal notification given FIFA by the NFF about details and true situation of the latest leadership tussle in the Nigerian soccer governing body.

“It is on the strength of the NFF letter that FIFA will take a decision on Tuesday, which is a week after the global body demanded an update on the matter, while also handing out a Friday deadline for a resolution of the issue,” said our source at the Glass House of the NFF.

The NFF responded on Friday, with details of the Supreme Court ruling ordered Chris Giwa to take over, pending the determination of a case against the Amaju Pinnick-led executive committee.

Also contained in the reply was a notification that a criminal investigation has also been launched against Pinnick, as well as NFF first vice-president, Barrister Seyi Akinwunmi, second vice-president, Shehu Dikko, General-Secretary, Dr Mohammed Sanusi and executive committee member, Alhaji Ahmed Yusuf.

It would be recalled that the Minister of Sports, Barrister Solomon Dalung ordered Pinnick and members of his executive committee to step aside at NFF due to a contempt of court order that he was served with for delaying implementation of the Supreme Court ruling.
