Court Sacks NFF President Amaju Pinnick

Amaju-1-1

Embattled NFF President, Amaju Pinnick has been fired.

A Federal High Court sitting in Jos, Plateau State delivered the ruling on Friday over the re-listed suit challenging the election of Pinnick as the President of the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF.

The Court ordered Chris Giwa to resume office as president of the football federation.

Before now, many had called for the resignation of Pinnick from the NFF especially as the Super Eagles failed to qualify for the AFCON 2017 same way they missed out on the 2015 edition.

Pinnick had played down on the resignation calls; describing them as over the board. It is yet to be seen how the world football governing body, FIFA will react to the latest development as the body usually frowns at football matters being taken to civil courts.
