FG orders NFF to comply with Court Order removing Amaju Pinnick as President | BellaNaija

Amaju Pinnick

The Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development has directed Amaju Pinnick step down as president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

According to Daily Trust, his was revealed in a statement released by the Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung.

The statement asked that the NFF comply with a court order asking Chris Giwa be recognised as the president of the federation.

Dalung said the directive follows a written notification signed by the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice.

The statement read:

I have been directed to notify you of the Orders dated June 5th 2018 made by Honorable Justice M. H. Kurya sitting at the Federal High Court Jos in respect of the above mentioned suit between Yahaya Adama Vs Alhaji Aminu Maigari which states that the election of the NFF held on August 26, 2014 under the leadership of Amb Chris Giwa be given recognition pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice filed in this case and that the purported ban of the Executive Committee elected on August 26, 2014 from football activities of the NFF is unconstitutional, null and void.

It is trite law that court orders are sacrosanct and any acts of disobedience to it constitutes threat to the rule of law. Consequent upon the above, you are hereby advised to comply with the orders of court made therein which for now, is the valid and binding order of court, in the absence of any other subsisting order or judgment to the contrary

This is a court order and not from Dalung. I will not want to go to Kuje prison because of disobedience of court orders. Therefore, I hereby comply with the court orders of June 5th 2018, while Mr Amaju Pinnick and others are also directed to comply with same.
