The executive committee of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has filed an appeal against Thursday’s ruling of the Federal High Court, Jos, which annulled the NFF Elective Congress of September 30.
The judge gave the order annulling the elections despite a preliminary objection filed by the NFF challenging the jurisdiction of the court to hear the case.
The NFF 1st vice president, Seyi Akinwunmi, speaking at the NFF’s secretariat in Abuja on Thursday, said: “We have been notified of the ruling of the court, which was made in spite of our filing for a preliminary objection concerning the jurisdiction of the court.
“However, our lawyers have gone to work immediately the order was made. We are appealing the ruling and also filing for Stay of Execution of the order.”
