Giwa assumed office as NFF President

In surprise move Ambassador Chris Giwa has assumed  the leadership of the Nigeria Football Federation as the President.
This followed the pronouncement by the Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Solomon Dalung, that the Federal Government has decided to abide by the ruling of the Supreme Court, which recognised Giwa as the president of the NFF.
Dalung said this was based on a memo by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, on the Supreme Court ruling.
This effectively brought to an end the regime of Amaju Pinnick, which was not recognised by the court.
At Giwa’s inaugural meeting at the NFF headquarters in Abuja were Senator Obinna Ogba, who chairs Senate Committee on Sports; Adama Yahaya; Effiong Johnson; and Alhaji Sani Fema.
Surprisingly, Otunba Sunday Dele-Ajayi, a member of the Pinnick-led board, attended the meeting.
Giwa and his board members, who were led to the Glass House by a Court Bailiff and Policemen, also addressed the NFF staff.
