Why Giwa turned down Pinnick’s olive branch

As the crisis rocking Nigerian football continues, there are very strong revelations that the president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) whose election took place at the Warri elective Congress of the federation, Amaju Pinnick has made frantic efforts to end the crisis.

Pinnick and Giwa

Sources at the NFF informed Sports Vanguard that part of the peace moves made by Pinnick was to offer the position of the chairman of the League Management Company (LMC) to Chris Giwa.

According to the revelation, Giwa who is also the chairman of Giwa FC of Jos may have been interested in accepting the offer but due to the fact that the other people in his camp would be left in the cold the deal did not materialize.

Two members of the Giwa faction who are claiming to be the authentic board of the now confused NFF, Obinna Ogba and Yahaya Adama had dragged the NFF to court seeking to invalidate the September 30 election where the Amaju Pinnick led board was elected.

Our source who pleaded anonymity said the olive branch was in line with the resolution of the Pinnick led board in one of their recent meetings to reposition the LMC with seven directorates and a Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Recall that the immediate past board of the NFF led by Alhaji Aminu Maigari had extended the mandate of the LMC led by Hon. Nduka Irabor till the end of the season.
