NFF Crisis: Nigeria faces fresh FIFA sanctions

World soccer governing body, FIFA has urged Chris Giwa to stop parading himself as the Nigeria Football Federation president. A letter signed by FIFA secretary-general, Jerome Valcke gave Giwa and his backers up till midnight of Monday September 1 to vacate the NFF secretariat.

The letter addressed to NFF secretary-general Musa Amadu declared that FIFA will not recognize the election that brought Giwa and his executive committee to power. And if by Tuesday morning order was not restored to the NFF, Nigeria will face international sanctions.

?We understand from the sequence of events that the general assembly duly convened by the NFF Executive Committee could not start as planned because some NFF members, including the president, were being held by security forces for questioning.

?Finally, we have learnt that the persons who claim to have been duly elected during the so-called ?elective general assembly? have come to the NFF offices claiming to be the legitimate president and members of the NFF. It also appears the Ministry of Sports has recognised them.

?As a consequence, we will not recognise the outcome of the above mentioned elections and should there still be persons claiming to have been elected and occupying the NFF offices at midnight Monday 1 September 2014, we will bring the case to the appropriate Fifa body for sanctions, which may include suspension of the NFF.?

Nigeria was suspended in July after Aminu Maigari was impeached by the executive committee. However, that suspension was lifted on July 18 after a road-map was agreed upon concerning the elections billed for August 26. However, two factions emerged after security forces prevented Maigari, Amadu and Chris Green from participating.

The faction of the group led by Ephraim Chukwuemeka proposed September 4 for its election.
