NFF: Court okays September 30 election

The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja has vacated the order restraining the conduct of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) election scheduled for Friday in Benin City.

According to a statement released on the NFF website, the ruling was passed on Thursday.

“A ruling by the Court of Appeal on Thursday morning ordered a stay-of-execution of an ex parte injunction secured by some fellows a fortnight ago to stop the elections, meaning that the coast is now clear for an interesting contest for the NFF presidency by 10 prominent individuals and dozen other notable persons jostling for seats on the Executive Committee”, the statement read.

The Skuup reported earlier this month that a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja had given an order halting the September 30 election.
