NFF Make U-Turn, Meet Players Union Over Appeal Court Case
The NFF have reversed their decision not to meet with the players union PFAN over an Appeal Court case, which could annul the results of the Elections that brought to power President Ibrahim Gusau and a new NFF Board.
In a letter dated November 30, 2022, the NFF requested for a meeting between the NFF President and PFAN top officials Harrison Jalla, Victor Baribote, Austin Popo, Edema Fuludu and Dahiru Sadi on Tuesday, December 6, 2022.
This will be a continuation of the out-of-court settlement the NFF initiated in October when several top FA chairmen led by Aminu Kurfi first met with PFAN officials in Abuja on the same matter.
The Appeal Court sitting in Abuja is set to soon rule on the case between the NFF and PFAN.
The players union has argued that the court does not have the jurisdiction to stay the order of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja for the NFF Elections not to go ahead on September 30, 2022, in Benin City.
Should PFAN’s position be upheld, the matter will return to the lower court, which will then be expected to annul the results of the Elections, where Gusau was voted new President of the NFF.
