The Federal High Court in Jos is set to deliver its ruling on the authentic president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), today. Both Amaju Pinnick and Ambassador Chris Giwa are locked in a ‘fight’ over who is the duly elected president of the NFF.
Giwa had taken over the NFF office since July 2, 2018 in compliance to a Supreme Court ruling, which voided the election of Mr. Pinnick.
Justice Musa Kurya, the Presiding Judge in the case between Yahaya Adama and Aminu Maigari and three others had, on June 5, made an ex-parte order asking Pinnick’s NFF leadership to vacate the Glass House for Giwa-led executive.
The Tin City court stated Monday that it will sit yesterday, August 1 for hearing of the motion to vacate its previous orders granting recognition to Giwa to lead the NFF while invalidating the process that brought Pinnick to the office.
