The president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, on Tuesday disclosed that a case instituted against the federation by Chris Giwa will begin on September 9 at the Supreme Court.Giwa has been locked in a tussle for the NFF leadership since 2014, african Football.com reports.
The chairman of Giwa Football Club has argued he was duly elected NFF president in August 2014 and his election should be upheld based on the laws of the land.
His case at the Appeal Court was thrown out and he has now taken the matter to the countryâ€™s highest court.
â€œWe have been served, we have a case on September 9, just three weeks before a big World Cup qualifier in Zambia and anything can happen,â€ africanFootball.com quoted Pinnick as saying in a YouTube interview.
The NFF president lamented that the instability in the country football polity has affected quest by the federation to attract private sector sponsorship.
â€œItâ€™s almost impossible to thrive under instability,â€ he complained.
â€œThis is purely destructive. For some people, if we cannot get it, let us destroy it.â€
