‘Rebel’ FA Chairmen Vow ‘Next Line Of Action’ After Pinnick Shuns Extended Deadline
The 28 State FA Chairmen have now vowed to take “the next line of action” against the NFF after the football federation headed by Amaju Pinnick (PICTURED) failed to heed an extended deadline issued by the chairmen.
On May 15, 2022, the FA Chairmen fired a resolution to the NFF Executive Committee demanding for the vacation of an exparte order from a Federal High Court in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, which has stopped any NFF Congress meeting, as well as for a General Assembly to be called.
The notice first deadline ran out, before a two-week extension was then given with a new deadline of June 14, 2022.
In both instances, the FA Chairmen did not receive a response from the NFF.
Pinnick has dismissed the notice of the Congress men, saying it is without any basis and simply full of mischief.
The court order has meant that the NFF have not been able to meet as one body to set the ground rules for their elective Congress on September 30, 2022.
In the event the NFF cannot stage fresh polls on the day, the federation’s secretariat will take temporary charge of Nigeria football before world football governing body FIFA set up a Normalisation Committee to design a new road map for the country’s No 1 sport.
