NFF to lose sponsors over leadership tussle between Pinnick, Giwa


The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is at the verge of losing some of its sponsors, following the latest twist in the leadership of the Glass House.


On Monday, the Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung, in a statement asked Amaju Pinnick to obey a Supreme Court’s ruling and vacate the office for Chris Giwa. 

Pinnick in response, insisted that his removal from office was “null and void.”

In April this year, Giwa and his board had dragged the FIFA-recognised Pinnick-led board to the Supreme Court, to set aside the verdict of the Appeal Court after they had won at the High Court, claiming that the mandate given to them by the congress of the NFF in August 2013 was sacrosanct.

In a tweet on Tuesday, former Media Officer of the Super Eagles, Colin Udoh, said sponsors were monitoring the situation closely.

“NFF sponsors are monitoring situation at the Glass House. Prepared to act on certain clauses in contracts and get out if crisis persists #NFFChaos,” Udoh tweeted.
