FIFA REJECTS CHRIS GIWA AS NEW NFF PRESIDENT

The federal government has moved to sack Amaju Pinnick as the President of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF)

Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung, said the directive followed a written notification signed by the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN) requesting the sports ministry to ensure compliance.

It is believed that the sack of the board headed by Pinnick was a fallout of Nigeria’s outing at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia, where the Super Eagles failed to advance to the Round of 16.

However, International football governing body, FIFA has refused to recognise Giwa as the elected president and may now sanction Nigeria, leading to a ban from all international football competition as the federal government action is deemed as interference.
