Federal High Court Sacks Amaju Pinnick as NFF President and Reinstates Chris Giwa

Amaju Pinnick

A Federal High Court sitting in Jos, Plateau State has sacked the Nigeria Football Federation President, Amaju Pinnick.

According to a shocking report on Premium Times, the President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, has been sacked by a Federal High Court sitting in Jos, the Plateau State capital, and also ordered Chris Giwa to resume office as president of the football federation.

It was learnt that the duo of Adama Yahaya and Obinna Ogba had approached the court to re-list the suit against Pinnick which they withdrew after the intervention of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Before the court ruling, many Nigerians had demanded the resignation of Pinnick from office who blamed him for the failure of the Super Eagles to qualify for the AFCON 2017, same way they missed out on the 2015 edition.

The embattled Pinnick had played down on the resignation calls, describing them as unnecessary.

It is yet to be seen how the world football governing body (FIFA), will react to the new twist in Nigerian football as FIFA opposes football matters being taken to civil courts.

We’ll be bringing you more details later…
