NFF Crisis: Five-year Giwa Ban Lifted, Leagues Ordered To Resume

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has lifted the Five-year ban on self-acclaimed President, Chris Giwa and others.

The Executive committee made these developments known on Thursday before the 2018 Extra-ordinary General Assembly held in Benin City subject to ratification by the Assembly.

Giwa FC, owned by Chris Giwa was handed permission to return to the second tier of the Nigerian Football League.

Giwa FC got elegated from the league after a series of breaches to the framework and organisational conduct of the league in 2016.

The leagues (NPFL, NNL, NWFL, NLO) which have been on hold since the Supreme Court judgement, have been directed to recommence.

Ever since a Supreme Court judgement – ostensibly mandating the Amaju Pinnick-led Executive board of the NFF, the various Nigerian leagues have been put on hold.

In May 2016, The NFF slammed a five-year ban on Chris Giwa, Sani Fema, Muazu Suleiman, Yahaya Adama and Effiong Johnson from all football related activities for taking football matters to domestic courts.

“The Congress mandated the Executive Committee to ensure the commencement of all football programmes, including Leagues, Aiteo Cup, Zenith Bank U13 & U15 Future Eagles Championship, among others, and directed the relevant NFF standing committees to appropriate support in this regard,” read a part of the Communique.

“The Congress as part of the wider reconciliation efforts, has mandated and approved for the NFF Electoral Committee to review the ongoing NFF electoral processes, guidelines and reopen the process for any qualified interested stakeholder to participate, including those that may qualify after meeting the set conditions of taking football matters out of ordinary courts as outlined above,” added the communique.
