NOT just a week ago that Nigeria narrowly escaped a FIFA ban, Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Festus Keyamo has said that there was no Supreme Court order restraining Amaju Pinnick from acting as the president of the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF.
Keyamo, lead counsel to Amaju Pinnick, in a statement on August 26, alleged that there was no court order preventing his client from acting as NFF President.
He also said that there was no court order to install Chris Giwa as President of NFF.
According to Keyamo, “There is no Supreme Court order or any other subsisting order restraining Amaju Pinnick from acting as President of the NFF or installing Chris Giwa as president of the NFF.
“We hereby challenge anybody who disputes this to publish the Supreme Court judgment or order where the names of Amaju Pinnick or Chris Giwa were ever mentioned in any portion of the judgment or as even parties to the case.
“The fact is that the court processes filed in the Supreme Court matter do not bear their names as parties to the suit whatsoever,” he added.
