Pinnick Steps Down As Chris Giwa Takes Over 'Glass House' (Photos) by PrettyCrystal: 7:02pm On Jul 02, 2018
Chris Giwa on Monday arrived at the Secretariat of Nigeria Football Federation popularly known as 'Glss House' with some security agents to assume office as substantive Chairman of the Federation. Giwa also spoke with journalists on his assumption of office in line with the ruling of the Supreme Court on June 5 at the boardroom.

He said that the court had nullified the parallel election held in Warri by the former chairman, Amaju Pinnick, and upheld him as the chairman.

“I am here to claim my mandate as the substantive chairman elected on August 26, 2014.

“We waited for the other board to finish the preparations for World Cup so that we can assume office,” Giwa said.

The new Federation boss promised to embark on reconciliation of all aggrieved members for the success of the Federation.

He explained that Nigeria’s sovereignty could not be threatened by any foreign interest, saying NFF operated in tandem with the Constitution.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Chris Giwa was allegedly elected chairman of the NFF on August 26, 2014, but the election was not recognised by FIFA.

FIFA eventually supervised another election on September 30 in Warri, Delta State, after it had threatened to ban Nigeria from all its activities. Amaju Pinnick eventually got elected with 32 votes out of the 44 votes and stepped into office.

Following the development, Giwa pursued his case to the Court of Arbitration for Sports, where he lost and was banned from football-related activities by FIFA..

However, the Supreme Court on June 5 set aside Pinnick’s election and recognised Giwa as substantive chairman.

Some board members who followed Giwa were: Chairman Senate Committee on Sports, Senator Obinna Ogba; board member representing North West, Shehu Adamu; Sanni Ferma for North East; board member representing South South, Johnson Effiong; Sunday Ajayi for South West and Yaya Adams for North Central.

I sense that there's a political side to this saga.
The power that be wants Giwa in the glasshouse and are attempting to put him there by all means.
Pinnick has done a lot for our football in the short time that he's been there and I sincerely doubt if Giwa will be able to surpass him, but then I'll give him the benefit of doubt.

The CAS is the highest court for sport disputes worldwide. He went there and lost, and he ran back to the Nigerian local courts? This man just wants to get Nigeria banned.

The north wants to be in control of everything in Nigeria. But anything they touch they destroy. These people fail to realize that fifa doesn't allow government interference in its organization. Watch how they will give Nigeria a long ban before the month runs out.

Pinnick has been our best NFF president ever. These greedy men are simply charging because they've heard how much fifa payed NFF after Nigeria was knockout of the world cup.

Northerner una be touch and destroy. Tụfịakwa undecided

I don't understand this Chris Giwa guy and I would be glad if someone can explain to me what he expects to happen.

He's been banned from FIFA related actives and the supreme Court doesn't have Jurisdiction with FIFA so how does he plan to lead a FIFA related body?

For the love of Nigerian football, Giwa should just let Pinnick continue. Pinnick has performed well, in my opinion.

Will he be recognized by FIFA having been banned from football related activities?
Pinnick did very well in my opinion.
Besides FIFA frowns upon taking its matters to local courts,be it supreme,sovereign or allmighty,except the court of arbitration.
