•Giwa may be arrested – Gaiya
The drama that has characterised the leadership tussle in the nation’s football establishment is beginning to take another twist as the Minister of Sports, Dr Tammy Danagogo says all parties should stay off the football secretariat until issues are fully resolved.
This followed the new development that unfolded on Tuesday as Alhaji Aminu Maigari reported at the Glass House of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to resume duties.
Maigari, who came in around 1.30 p.m, went immediately to the president’s office where he treated some files. When asked by newsmen of his mission to the NFF secretariat, he said: “I am here to do some job in respect of my office.
Maigari’s presence at the Glass House followed the last letter written by FIFA which ordered that he be allowed to return to office to maintain the status quo and organise a new election.
After spending close to two hours in the office in the company of Barrister Chris Green, Chief Emeka Inyama, Ahmed Yusuf Fresh and Ahmed Kawu, he was summoned by Danagogo, to his office at the National Stadium, where they had a closed door session
Upon emergence from the meeting, the sports minister told newsmen that he was not aware that Maigari went to the office, and that in the interim he will advise all parties to stay off the NFF secretariat pending when all issues are resolved.
On the purported letter from the Court for Arbitration for (CAS), the Chris Giwa faction claimed had been sent to the Glass House, the minister would not want to be categorical, but his body language indicated that such a letter could have been sent to the NFF.
But when newsmen confronted Barrister Musa Amadu on this development, he simply waved off all enquiries.
Giwa may be arrested – Gaiya
The chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Sports, Honourable Godfrey Ali Gaiya
says it has become necessary to order for the arrest of Mr Chris Giwa, if he insists onactualising his claim to have been duly elected as the president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF.
Gaya made the submission while reacting to the current impasse that has bedevilled the nation’s football establishment.
