Football Governing Body FIFA President Gianna Infantino has aired his voice regarding the leadership crisis in Nigeria Football, he said “Pinnick Amaju is the president of NFF and if anybody thinks he can do what he likes, Nigeria stands the risk of being banned. That is very simple and clear”
The Pinnick-led NFF Executive Committee was removed after Youths and Sports Minister Solomon Dalung asked the federation to obey a Supreme Court order on the federation’s 2014 elections.
A crisis is brewing in the Nigeria Football Federation, following a court ruling directing the current board of the federation to vacate office for another one to be led by Chris Giwa, who contested an election against current President, Amaju Pinnick, in 2014. Pinnick has rejected the order, saying “court orders are not binding on FIFA, which the Nigeria Football Federation is an affiliate of”.
Mr Pinnick is still in Russia for the 2018 World Cup though new elections are already scheduled for August.
