NFF board faction leader, Chris Giwa, who was ousted from the offices of the Nigerian football governing body on Monday by the officers of the Department of State Security (DSS) says that he’s confident that the law which validated his rights to the presidency of NFF will reinstate him within hours.
Giwa told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday that unless the rule of law which paved way for him in the first instance was no longer important in the country, the Supreme Court ruling and the April 27, 2018 Orders of the Federal High Court in Jos on the NFF issue will reinstall him in no time.
“By the grace of God, we employed patience to go through the judicial system of the land as guaranteed by Article 1.1 of the NFF Statute to reach where we are,” NAN quotes Giwa as saying.
“Except if the law and the judiciary is no more significant can what happened on Monday be allowed. Evil will not thrive over good.
“I urge our friends, allies and supporters to remain calm. Truth shall return to the centre stage in a couple of hours.
“What you have seen is like the different scenes in a Nollywood film. All I know is that the rule of law will not lie low against the rule of might and influence peddling.”
