The report submitted to the NFF Secretariat by members of the NFF 2014 Electoral Committee, upholding the NFF 2014 Elective Congress held in Warri on Tuesday, 30th September has been endorsed by prominent and relevant authorities and bodies across the globe, including the sports committees of the National Assembly.
Chairman of the Senate Committee on Sports, Senator Adamu Gumba said his committee will stick by the report of the majority of the members of the NFF 2014 Electoral Appeals Committee.
All four members of the NFF 2014 Electoral Appeals Committee on Wednesday conveyed to the NFF Secretariat their decision throwing out the appeals and upholding in its entirety, the NFF 2014 Elective Congress of Tuesday, 30th September, 2014.
In any judicial body, the opinion of every member counts. The chairman merely reads the decision, which may be against his own considered view and position. A ruling is either unanimous or split, and even when the chairman’s position is in the minority; he has no choice but to read the majority decision.
Chairman of the House of Reps’ Committee on Sports, Hon. Godfrey Gaiya added his voice on Thursday, saying that he has never seen anywhere in the world where one prevails over four.
“It is a moot point. The decision of the majority is what the House Committee on Sports will stand by. Any other claim is minority opinion that does not have any leg to stand on.
