Chris Giwa has vowed to resume work at the secretariat of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on Wednesday.
He gave this hint at a press conference held at the Numero Uno Hotel, Gwarinpa, Abuja on Tuesday.
His action is premised on the a Federal High Court order last Friday nullifying the elections that brought Amaju Pinnick led board to power.
He has also sacked all the states football association chairmen on the premise of the court order.
“We will be in the secretariat tomorrow,” he said.
“The major reason why we have not come to the secretariat is that we are law abiding people and we wanted the court order to be duly served to the relevant authorities. This is our right and we will be there tomorrow (Wednesday) by the grace of God,” Giwa vowed.
He said that based on the Order of the Federal High Court Jos which nullified the Warri elections that has guaranteed the fact that all actions undertaken by the Amaju Pinnick board are illegal and unknown to law. Therefore, all state Football Associations stand dissolved. Existing board members in the states are free to re-contest their positions.
“It has come to the notice of the Board that the sacked Amaju Pinick board had invited some persons to Abuja to cause confusion, we wish to alert the public that we shall file contempt of court proceedings on such persons.
“Tomorrow (Wednesday), there shall be an Extra-Ordinary Congress of the appointed state caretaker committee in Abuja where decisions shall be reached and communicated to the nation in due course.”
