The Federal High Court in Jos yesterday refused to grant a request to stop Chris Giwa from taking over as the President of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

Amaju Pinnick, whose four-year tenure as NFF President is due to end on Sept. 30, filed a motion challenging the court’s ex-parte order which installed Giwa in office.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the court’s latest ruling meant Pinnick has again failed to dislodge Giwa from the NFF.

Justice Kurya again adjourned the case until September 25 to enable Pinnick to properly file his motion before the court and effect service to all the parties involved in the matter.
