The controversies that have bedeviled the Nigerian Football Federation for months now show no sign of abating, even after yesterday’s elections that were supposed to chart a new era for the troubled Glass House.
Adding to the drama today, embattled Chris Giwa vowed to resume work after the independence day break tomorrow.
Speaking to reporters, the Giwa FC owner said he sees no reason why he shouldn’t return to work considering he is still number one as far as Nigeria’s football is concerned.
Giwa will be coming back despite a court order which had directed that the process leading to yesterday’s elections in Warri be suspended.
“We shall resume on Thursday. I issued a statement to that effect. We have been working so we would be going back to office on Thursday,” Giwa said.
Delta State Football Association chairman, Amaju Pinnick, who was yesterday in Warri elected the new president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) after front runner Shehu Dikko controversially withdrew from the race is also expected to fully take over the affairs the game tomorrow.
This development means two presidents will show up at the Glass House tomorrow, each claiming the right to govern the country’s football with FIFA waiting on the wings, the effects of tomorrow’s actions might turn out to be devastating for Nigeria.
