Chris Giwa has officially assumed office as President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) after being elected by a faction of the NFF congress on Tuesday.
The Giwa FC proprietor arrived the Glass House in Wuse Zone 7, Abuja at around 2pm and spoke briefly to the press, before proceeding to the President’s office, where a prayer session was said.
He was in company of other members; Felix Obuah, Obinna Ogba, Yahaya Adams, Sani Ferma and Effiong Johnson.
Speaking on arrival, Giwa posited that the immediate focus is to get the game running as expected.
“The first thing we want to do is to get everything together and get football running again.”
He also said the NFF secretariat will be moved from the Glass House, which was gutted by fire last week to the new building inside the Abuja National Stadium which is called the Sunday Dankaro house.
But, reacting to the annulment of his election by the FA chairmen, Mr. Giwa, insisted there was nothing wrong with his election, saying he was ready to work with all to move the nation’s football forward.
According to him, it was not compulsory that representatives of FIFA and CAF should be on ground before election could be conducted.
