As the Jos High Court interim injunction hit the news waves, the sacked chieftains of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) who were in London were reportedly shocked.
They had to call an emergency ‘board’ meeting where it was resolved to secure the services of the PDP National Chairman, Alhaji Muazu, who is a son-in-law of Alhaji Aminu Maigari, the NFF President.
Source reports revealed that the NFF had envisioned that their adversaries can stump them out in any manner and in order to secure the support of the National Chairman of the ruling PDP, they took two business class tickets and estacode to the chairman.
When we took the ticket and cash there, as if the man knew, he asked ‘hope this ticket and cash has no back lash and he was assured that there is no backlash of any sort.
By this morning, they would have arrived the country from London.
However, chairmen of the 36 Football Association and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) will be having an emergency meeting today in Abuja to review the latest development. Sources told this newspaper that the FA chairmen in view of superior arguments of the necessity for football matter to be taken outside the regular court system may have resolved to ratify the sack of the illegal Maigari board, approve a return to the nomenclature of the Nigeria Football Association (NFA) which is the only legal instrument that the law of the land recognises and summarily end the tenure of the controversial Aminu Maigari tenure.
The source, which pleaded anonymity told this reporter that with the existing two judgments from Justices Okon Abang of the Federal High Court Lagos and Donatus Okorowa of the Federal High Court Abuja, the most sensible thing to do is to revert back to the NFA and use this opportunity, a rare one, to correct the major structural errors that had ravaged and pulled Nigerian football to the dirty and murky waters that the Maigari administration further entrenched the game.
