FIFA Gives Nigeria Deadline to Settle NFF Crisis or Face Suspension

FIFAFIFA

FIFA has said it would go on to suspend Nigeria and Ghana from football activities if they failed to comply with its instructions by Monday, August 20.

FIFA, in a statement by its Media Office on Tuesday said it had been notified about ongoings in the two federations, and it viewed them as “undue interference in their affairs’’.

It said Nigeria must ensure the NFF offices in Abuja are occupied by the Amaju Pinnick faction of the federation’s Congress by Monday.

FIFA, however, said whatever decision it would take would not affect the Falconets, Nigeria’s under-20 women team, who are currently in France participating in the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.

Recall that the Glass House has been occupied recently at different times by both the Chris Giwa and Pinnick factions of the federation’s Congress

This occupation has however been with the aid of men of the Nigeria Police and the Department of State Services at such times.

While Giwa’s occupation was said to be “at the instance of the courts’’, that of Pinnick was said to be “on the orders of Presidency’’.
