Chris Giwa
Peace
may finally return to Nigerian football as Chris Giwa will withdraw his case in
court so the country can move forward.
A
person who should know told naijafootball247.com that during a late night
(Wednesday) chat with the president of the country, Goodluck Jonathan, Giwa was
told to go back and withdraw the case so that football can move forward in Nigeria.
“When
the president of your country talks to you, you have no choice but listen to
him so we expect the case withdrawn later today (Thursday) when it comes up in
court,” Our source said.
Chris
Giwa was voted into office as president of the Nigeria Football Federation on
August 26, in an election that was strongly criticized and disputed by the
congress of Nigerian football.
World
Football governing body, FIFA “ordered” another elections for September 30
which Giwa went to a court in Jos to stop.
Despite
a court order stopping the elections, the NFF went ahead and voted Amaju
Pinnick as its new president before the same court in Jos last week nullified
the elections ordering Pinnick to vacate the glass house.
With
FIFA writing to Nigeria for the umpteenth time giving the country until Friday to
put its house in order, this development certainly comes in the nick of time.

Have your say. We'd love to know what you think.
