Double Tragedies For Giwa, Loses Control Over NFF, Banned By CAF

Chris GiwaThe embattled Chris Giwa appears to have lost control over his attempt to control the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) even as he has just been banned for five years by the Confederation of African Football (CAF)
In the letter signed CAF’s Secretary-General, Hicham El Amrani, the African soccer ruling body said that the ban was sequel to the reportage of the crisis in the NFF.
The matter was taken to CAF by the NFF Board led by Amaju Pinnick.
El Amrani said that after studying the case as reported to it, it decided to ban Giwa and his co-travellers in the factional NFF.
Others affected by the ban are Muazu Suleyman, Yahya Adama, Sanni Fema and Johnson Effiong.
The letter, addressed to Pinnick and titled: “RE- CONVEYANCE OF SANCTIONS BY NFF DISCIPLINARY SANCTIONS EXTENSION AT THE CONTINENTAL LEVEL,” reads in full:
