Federal High Court Sacks Amaju Pinnick As NFF President

I don't know why football administration is always riddled with in-fighting... 
Reports have it that the President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, has been sacked by a Federal High Court sitting in Jos, the Plateau State capital.
The court and also ordered Chris Giwa to resume office as president of the football federation.

It was gathered that the duo of Adama Yahaya and Obinna Ogba had approached the court to re-list the suit against Pinnick which they withdrew after the intervention of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan. 
Before the court ruling, many Nigerians had demanded the resignation of Pinnick from office who blamed him for the failure of the Super Eagles to qualify for the AFCON 2017, same way they missed out on the 2015 edition. Pinnick had played down on the resignation calls, describing them as unnecessary.

We await the reaction of the world football governing body (FIFA) to the new twist in Nigerian football as FIFA opposes football matters being taken to civil courts.
