The court endorsed president of the Nigerian Football Federation, Chris Giwa has vowed to start work at the secretariat today.
Giwa spoke at a press conference held Tuesday at the Numero Uno Hotel, Gwarinpa Abuja.
“I got into Abuja this afternoon and I can tell you that time is not on our side. The NFF secretariat is there. That is our secretariat. I am not based in Abuja. I just came into Abuja this afternoon. We will be in the secretariat tomorrow. That is our secretariat.
Justice Musa Kurya of a Federal High Court, Jos, on Friday nullified the election of Amaju Pinnick-led board of the NFF held on Sept. 30, 2014.
The case which was re-listed for hearing on May 30, after it was withdrawn by the Giwa group also restated the nullification of the election and congress held on Sept. 30, 2014 in Warri,
He said it was necessary that the board resumed duties at the football secretariat as files and officials documents were allegedly being taken away from various offices at the NFF secretariat.
“I got information that files were being taken out of NFF secretariat and on Saturday when I was talking to a personality, I reported that matter.
“I personally made a request that the place be secured.
“As a law abiding citizen, one of the major reasons why we were not there yesterday was because we wanted to get the main order of the court rolled out yesterday and signed.
