Nigeria’s Football House  Under Our Control – Akinwunmi

Seyi Akinwumi, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) 1st Vice President has rubbished claims to the leadership of the NFF by the Chris Giwa group.

A Federal High Court sitting in Jos last Friday nullified the September 30, 2014 election that ushered the Amaju Pinnick led board into office.

The court premised its nullification on the injunction that the election be postponed until a matter before it was disposed off.

Despite the court order, Akinwumi said in an interview on Brila FM on Tuesday that his group was still administering football in the country.

He laughed off the claims of the Giwa group over who is administering football in the country.

According to him, the African Women’s Cup of nations (AWCON) qualification match between Super Falcons and Terenga Lioness of Senegal in Abuja on Tuesday was coordinated by his group, noting that this showed that Pinnick led group was still administering football in the country.

“As far as running of football is concerned, I don’t think there is a debate as to what the status quo is. There is no issue to debate. We are not in any fight with anybody. All we are doing is to keep on doing our job and all Nigerians should support our teams to do well. We are in charge,” he said.
