Confusion As NFF Electoral Appeal Committee ‘Nullifies’ Pinnick-Led Executive

The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Electoral Appeals Committee has nullified the same elections September 30 polls that produced the Amaju Pinnick-led executive, the Chairman of the Committee, Okey Ajunwa, said.

Mr. Ajunwa’s ruling contradicts the ruling of three other members of the committee who upheld the polls on Wednesday.

Speaking with journalists in Abuja on Thursday, Mr. Ajunwa said other committee members who “hastily” upheld the September polls are not legal practitioners and were ignorant of the law.

“None of them is a lawyer, I am the lawyer and I know the law, I have gathered the results of the committee and I will read them out in accordance to FIFA and CAF rules,” Mr. Ajunwa told journalist today in Abuja.

He declared: “The Elections of Amaju Pinnick is hereby nullified and he is been banned from parading himself as the President of the Nigeria Football Federation.”

Mr. Pinnick said his decision was based on the fact that the Electoral Committee for the election was illegally composed and that no FIFA observer was on ground during the elections.

He also ruled that the election was marred by violence and abuse.
