There is anxiety among football stakeholders in the land following another court order in Jos which ousted the Amaju Pinnick-led Executive Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF.
Although Pinnick swiftly filed an appeal seeking to set aside the ruling, Chris Giwa has gone ahead to announce changes in the administration of the game in the country and has also vowed to take over the Glass House this week.
Following an emergency meeting in Abuja last weekend, the board of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) announced the appointment of new management staff, acting chairmen of committees and secretaries.
The board equally announced the dissolution of all standing committees appointed by the former board led by Pinnick Amaju.
Also, all contract staff apart from Director of Marketing, Mr. Idris Adama, are to proceed on one-month compulsory leave with effect from Monday April 11, 2016.
In a statement signed by Chief Effiong Johnson the Chairman of Chairmen, Mr. Bola Oyeyode is now the acting General Secretary, Mr. Lawrence Katken will head the competition department in acting capacity, Mr. Barnabas Joro will be acting head of protocol, Dr. Robinson Okosun-acting of head of media & communications, Mr. Ayo Rahman acting executive secretary national league, Mr. Shola Ogunnowo acting secretary nationwide league, Mr. Danlami Alalana acting secretary women league.
Meanwhile, former FIFA and CAF instructor Chief Adegboye Onigbinde has said that FIFA won’t ban Nigeria for the court order that ousted the Amaju Pinnick board just as it has not done anything about the recent court order in Egypt.
According to the former Super Eagles coach, “some persons have been using the name of Fifa to threaten Nigeria in the past and there is no fooling anybody on the issue again since it is an internal matter.
“What I know is that I don’t expect FIFA to ban Nigeria on this case. In the past some persons have been used to threaten the nation that FIFA would ban the country but with what is happening to FIFA and at FIFA now we all know that there is no international law that supersedes the law of the land,” Onigbinde said.
Protagonists of the ousted NFF President, Amaju Pinnick, have already hinted that Fifa will be writing the nation on Wednesday next week. These protagonists who have the power to know what is going on in the Fifa headquarters in Zurich also know that Nigeria will receive the letter banning or suspending the nation on Wednesday.
“We are waiting for the Fifa letter. All those ‘jabulani’ (fake) letters. We know how and where they are always manufactured. You know I was a deep part of them some years ago. I know they won’t bring out those their fake letters. If they do this time around, they will go to jail, I promise you, said Effiong Johnson.
