Nigeria Face FIFA Ban As Pinnick, Giwa Case Is Adjourned
Nigeria is at the risk of a FIFA ban after a Jos court failed to deliver judgement on the case between Nigeria Football Federation President Amaju Pinnick and his challenger Chris Giwa.
The four year-old case was expected to be resolved at the Federal High Court in Jos, Plateau State on Tuesday but it was adjourned to 25 September.
Pinnick has been the NFF President since 2014 but a Supreme Court ruling two weeks ago appeared to give Giwa the mandate, and he has since presumably assumed office.
Tuesday was fixed to hear a new motion filed by Pinnick, challenging the ex parte order the court granted Giwa.
Pinnick approached the court for the relief after the Supreme Court judgment which ordered him to comply with the lower court’s order that compelled him to vacate the office for Giwa.
