–Both actors failed to start work yesterday in Abuja
Both the newly elected president of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick and the acclaimed winner of the August 26 election, Chris Giwa failed to show up at the Glass House secretariat of the NFF yesterday despite threat from Giwa.
The newly elected executive committee led by Amaju Pinnick was expected to assume office in Abuja yesterday but the staff who were all set to roll out the red carpet to welcome him left dejected when he failed to show up.
Giwa who had also boasted that he remained the NFF president until the court prove him otherwise was also nowhere near the Glass House yesterday and no reason was given for his not reporting in the office as earlier planned.
Staffs of the federation who were in high spirit to receive the newly elected president had to leave office at 5pm when it became obvious that Pinnick would no longer report.
“We are happy that we have a new president and that peace has returned to our football with the election. We want things to return to normal. We are tired of the tussle and will appreciate it if we have seen the last of the fight for the leadership of the federation” they stated.
Meanwhile, words have filtered in that the Amaju Pinnick led executive have rescheduled the resumption date to Wednesday October 8 to enabled them rest after the tedious election and celebrate the Sallah with their families.
