NFF Congress Blasts Pinnick Excos For Statutes Violation, Unilateral Decisions
NFF Congress delegates (PICTURED) as well as major stakeholders have berated the NFF Executive Committee led by Amaju Pinnick of usurping their powers and in general violating the NFF Statutes 2010, which governs the running of football in the country.
Last week, the NFF Executive Committee purportedly approved the NFF 2022 budget even though it does not have the power to do so as such approval can only be done by the General Assembly, which is the NFF Congress.
“The hooligans are roping themselves more with Statutes violation every day,” a major stakeholder told www.insideglasshouse.com
“I hear that the FA Chairmen Forum is rumbling as a result of decisions taken by the NFF without due process.
Executive Committee cannot pass a budget outside the Congress, technical committee never sat to discuss a new coach.
“More wahala dey come for them.”
The State FA Chairmen of Imo, Abia, Ekiti and Kwara are all spoiling for war over these Statutes violations and have promised not to let up.
A State FA Chairman was lashed at by his counterparts after he pleaded that they support the Pinnick leadership in these trying times.
By the order of a Yenagoa High Court, which aborted the NFF Annual General Assembly (AGA), the NFF cannot as a result operate a budget for the New Year until they have set aside this ruling.
The total and continued abuse of the NFF Statutes was one of the issues retired footballer and board member of Nembe City FC, Seigha Obiene, raised with the Federal High Court Yenagoa division.
The case will resume on January 10, 2022.
