|Ex NIGERIAN INTERNATIONAL,Victor Ikpeba and Amaju Pinnick.
See how messed up we are in Nigeria? Where people will do anything to get into power and public office.How many times do we want to challenge election results?How is the country supposed to move forward when all the respective organisation ruling different fields can't be in office for two days without a court case?
A Federal High Court sitting in Jos, Plateau state today October 23rd nullified the September 30th general election of the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF, which saw Mr Amaju Pinnick elected as the President of the NFF.
How are things supposed to run smoothly with our football with all these pending?These guys are selfish and have not the interest of the nation.If they did,they would be sensible enough to know this is bad timing,the Super Eagles are hanging on a lifeline trying to qualify for the African nations cup and all these nonsense!
Nigeria is truly messed up with the people we have vying for public office.I really do feel atimes that what we need in that country is a dictator.
Delivering his judgement in the case brought against the NFF leadership by some unhappy members of the association, Justice Ambrose Allagoa insisted that his court ruling must be obeyed by the affected parties. He stated that an order he gave earlier on September 19th where he restrained the members from holding the election congress was disobeyed, that this one must be respected
So where does this leave Pinnick and all the other sacked executives?Back in court to appeal of course.The crazy merry go round of Nigerian leadership goes on."I have set aside all the proceedings and decisions of the Warri Extra Ordinary meeting of the 20th September and the Elective Congress of 30th September which were direct contravention of the orders of this court as granted on the 19th September. Nobody should foist on the court a complete case of hopelessness so that the principles of law and justice can be upheld. Its not enough to say that the order of court was wrongly made, no matter how unorthodox, its subsisting orders, unless set aside, remains law and must be respected" he said.
