Appeal Court Stays Injunction For NFF To Hold Elections Tomorrow
The Appeal Court sitting in Abuja today has stayed an injunction against the NFF Elections fixed for Benin City tomorrow.
The Elections will therefore go ahead as planned.
The NFF and the litigants are due to return to court on October 5, 2022.
However, legal experts are at a loss how this matter could have been transferred to the higher court without the leave of the Federal High Court Abuja, which granted this court order in the first instance.
On Wednesday, the Federal Government through the Sports Ministry warned against the football federation going ahead with the polls as the injunction had not been vacated.
It insisted the NFF must respect the rule of the country’s law.
