The Federal High Court in Jos on Wednesday fixed today October 30 for ruling on an appeal for execution of its October 23 ruling nullifying the General Assembly of Nigeria Football Federation in Warri, Delta.
Justice Ambrose Alagoa said this would enable him to rule on whether or not to stay execution of the ruling.
Mr Amaju Pinnick was elected NFF Chairman during the Warri Assembly and subsequent Elective Congress.
A faction of the NFF led by Chief Chris Giwa then went to court to seek annulment of the election. Giwa said he was the authentic NFF Chairman after emerging victorious during its August 25 election.
He urged the court to declare that his faction was the authentic managers of NFF and should be so declared.
In his ruling on that matter last week, Alagoa declared the Giwa faction of the NFF as authentic and ordered that its executive council be allowed to function.
“I have set aside all the proceedings and decisions of the Warri Extra Ordinary meeting of Sept. 20 and the Elective Congress of September 30 which were direct contraventions of the orders of this court as granted on Sept. 19.
“Nobody should foist on the court a complete case of hopelessness so that the principles of law and justice can be upheld.
