Giwa: I remain NFF president

–Says he will resume duty on Thursday

Giwa FC boss Chris Giwa has stated that he remains the president of the Nigeria Football Federation despite the election of Amaju Pinnick yesterday in Warri.

In a press statement released yesterday, Giwa stated: “I, Ambassador Christopher Giwa, the President of the Nigeria Football Federation elected into office on the 26th August 2014 at the Chida Hotel in Abuja remains the head of the nations football governing body.

“It came to our notice that some people gathered in Warri in Delta state to conduct an illegal election. We are aware that as a law abiding body, we followed the prescription of the Court of Arbitration in Sports (CAS) after exploring all available arbitration processes as provided for in the NFF Statute. Since we approached that court, I have in accordance with international best practices kept mute.”

It would be recalled that Delta State FA chairman Pinnick was elected as the new NFF President, in an election held in Warri, beating off the likes of Taiwo Ogunjobi, Dominic Iorfa, Amanze Uchegbulam and Mike Umeh.

    Mr.Giwa….please pipe down and let peace rain in our football fraternity

  • Mr Giwa please let there be peace.

  • FROM THE BEGINNING THIS MR GIWA JUST WANT THE SEAT. WAS HE SUPPORTED BY THE MAIGARI TEAM? WAS HE SUPPORTED BY THE GOVERNMENT AS REPRESENTED BY THE MINISTER? DID FIFA NOT SAY THAT 26TH AUGUST WAS NO MORE FUSIBLE? I WILL ADVISE MR GIWA TO FORGET THIS SO CALL NFF PRESIDENT AND MOVE ON. AMAJU IS THE JUNIOR BROTHER OF MRS UDUAGHAN. DR UDUAGHAN IS A VERY GOOD FRIEND OF PRESIDENT JONATHAN GOODLUCK AND DANAGOGO. SO WHAT DO YOU EXPECT? THE ELECTION WAS HELD IN WARRI, AMAJU’S PENALTY AREA. GIWA SHOULD EMBRACE PEACE.

    Mr. Chris Giwa, please, respect yourself and tow the line of peace once and for all. If you dear step into that NFF Glass house on Thursday, you will have yourself to blame. For your information, the government is solidly behind this young man (Pinnick) as the minister himself was represented at the election by Bolaji Ojo Oba. Also, the fact that Amaju Pinnick is a junior brother of Governor Oduaghan who is a good friend of President Goodluck Jonathan is an enough warning to tell you to pipe low or else you will be disgraced.

    You said the only institution or body that could stop you from parading yourself as NFF President is Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) and after taking your case there it was thrown out, yet you are still bragging. You have proved to Nigerians that you and your cohorts are the real enemies of Nigerian football and God will punish you. Before, it was between you and Maigari, now you want to face Amaju Pinnick, you are already a failure. Idiot.

    It’ll be a shameful thing if president Jonathan allows this miscreant to keep rubbing the name of Nigeria Football in the mud. For crying out loud this fake giwa of a man has been associated with troubles, fraud and lawlessness . We’ve not forgotten how this taut refused to abide by the lay down rules of the League management board concerning a minimum salary platform of 150,000 naira for all the players in Premier league , instead he took the matter to court … the rest is now story. It’s high time Nigerian Football Federation o away with road side hoodlums and hooligans from our football even that joke he calls giwa fc should be banned from competing ANY football league in Nigeria since this giwa thinks that he’s much more important than the image of Nigeria Football .
    This guy is an UNMITIGATTED dreamer and should be flushed away like the typical piece of shit he’s.
