The president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick has disclosed a case instituted against the federation by Chris Giwa will begin on September 9 at the country’s apex court, the Supreme Court.
Giwa has been locked in a tussle for the NFF leadership since 2014.
He has argued he was duly elected NFF president in August 2014 and his election should be upheld based on the laws of the land.
His case at the Appeal Court has been thrown out and he has now taken the matter to the Supreme Court, the country’s highest court.
“We have been served, we have a case on September 9, just three weeks before a big World Cup qualifier (in Zambia) and anything can happen,” Pinnick disclosed in a YouTube interview.
The NFF boss again lamented that the instability in the football polity in Nigeria has affected a drive by the federation to attract private sector sponsorship.
“It’s almost impossible to thrive under instability,” he complained.
“This is purely destructive. For some people, if we cannot get it, let us destroy it.”
