The Chris Giwa-led faction of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on Sunday in Abuja said it had terminated the appointment of Mohammed Sanusi as NFF General Secretary with immediate effect.
Victor Iroele, Special Assistant on Media to Mr Giwa, disclosed in a statement that Mr Sanusi’s letter of appointment termination had been copied the Youths and Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung.
He said Mr Sanusi’s sacking was in view of the enrolment Order 5, page 3 of the Order of the Federal High Court in Jos.
“The NFF Executive Committee has therefore decided to act in line with the ruling of the court of competent jurisdiction as it affects the position of the General Secretary of NFF,” Iroele said.
He said Mr Sanusi’s appointment as General Secretary falls within one of those “acts, resolutions and/or decisions taken by the Executive Committee elected on Sept. 30 of 2014’’
“This underscores the need to dispense with his services.’’
The media aide said Mr Sanusi had been directed to hand over all the federation’s property and documents in his possession to the Head of Administration at the NFF Secretariat immediately.
The Chris Giwa NFF faction is not recognised by world football governing body, FIFA.
