BREAKING!!! FIFA Orders Factional NFF President Chris Giwa To Vacate Office by kel4soft: 7:02pm On Aug 29, 2014
The World Soccer Ruling Body, FIFA has
ordered the newly elected President of
Nigeria Football Federation, Chris Giwa to
vacate office latest by midnight, Monday,
September 1, 2014.

In a letter addressed to NFF General
Secretary, Musa Amadu and dated August
29, FIFA noted that from the report it
received, the election that produced Mr.
Chris Giwa is not acceptable.

The body also warned of the consequence
should he continue to lay claim to the
NFF Presidency, saying the secretariat
would not hesitate to refer Nigeria’s case
to the appropriate FIFA committee for
sanction.

Find below the letter sent by FIFA and
signed by its Scribe, Jerome Valcke.


Situation of the Nigeria Football Federation

Dear General Secretary,

We refer to the enclosed reports we have
received from members of the Nigeria
Football Federation (NFF) and the
Association of Professional Footballers of
Nigeria, as well as to information relayed by
the media with regard to the events linked to
the general assembly of the NFF on 26
August 2014.

We understand from the sequence of events
that the general assembly duly convened by
the NFF Executive Committee could not start
as planned because some NFF members,
including the president, were being held by
security forces for questioning.

We also note that, despite these absences,
some members decided to hold an
impromptu ‘elective general assembly’ while
the delegates were supposed to be deciding
on a new roadmap leading to elections for a
new NFF Executive Committee.

According to the enclosed reports, 39 out of
44 of the delegates then resolved to hold an
ad hoc general assembly during which they
decided that elections would be organised
for 4 September 2014 and elected new
members to the electoral committees.

Finally, we have learnt that the persons who
claim to have been elected during the so-
called ‘elective general assembly’ have come
to the NFF offices claiming to be the
legitimate president and members of the
NFF. It also appears that the Ministry of
Sports has recognised them.

As stated previously, FIFA deems the general
assembly to be the highest decision-making
body of any football association and that its
decisions are consequently binding, provided
that these comply with the member
association’s own statutes.

According to the facts reported to us, it
appears that the vast majority of the NFF
members decided to set the elections for 4
September 2014 and we consider this
decision to be valid since it was taken by the
highest decision-making body (the NFF
general assembly) and conforms to what has
been previously reported to FIFA.

As a consequence, we will not recognise the
outcome of the abovementioned elections
and should there still be persons claiming to
have been elected and occupying the NFF
offices at midnight on Monday 1 September
2014, we will bring the case to the
appropriate FIFA body for sanctions, which
may include the suspension of the NFF.

We ask you to inform all parties concerned
accordingly and we thank you in advance
for keeping us informed of any developments
in the situation. In particular, we would like
you to confirm that the date of 4 September
2014 will be met because the timing seems
very short.

Yours sincerely,
FIFA
Jérôme Valcke
Secretary General

Why shoul the Sport Minister and Security forces arrest Maigari and Chris Green? FIFA regulation is clear..."Govt should stay out of football administration". The whole process was an aberration to common sense and the laid down rules. Thumps Up FIFA

Nigeria never fails to amaze embarassed embarassed
That's why sports writers sometimes refer to the sports minister as the Minster of Football lipsrsealed lipsrsealed
We get a new sports minister and in under 6 months, we have issues in the running of our football administration angry angry
Who does not know that it is the witch that shrieked last night (new sports minister) that killed the child in the morning (NFF palava)
When will we learn that FIFA doesn't tolerate government interference in running of football matters undecided undecided
Anyway, if Fifa bans us till kingdom come, the consolation is that European leagues have started again cool cool
