Nigeria look set to be replaced at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup on Tuesday, after a Jos High Court failed to sit on Friday and set aside a ruling which restrained the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) from office.
FIFA have demanded that Nigeria put away a court ruling that sacked the Aminu Maigari-led NFF executive committee as well as the NFF congress.
The world football governing body also ordered for the full reinstatement of the elected NFF before it would review the ban against the country.
However, on Friday, the Jos high court failed to sit on account of a nationwide strike by judicial workers, but there are assurances it may now sit on Monday.
A total of 32 of the 44-member NFF congress were physically present in Jos for the court
Meanwhile, a Nigerian delegation led by the country’s sports minister Tammy Danagogo, is yet to make a presentation to FIFA in Brazil. FIFA have maintained their position that the court ruling must be quashed and the NFF be reinstated without fail.
