FIFA lifts ban on Nigeria

FIFA has lifted the ban it placed on Nigeria on July 9th after a high court sitting in Jos sacked the President of the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF, Aminu Maigari and other board members. FIFA had frowned at the court ruling, stating that the move was a government interference in football activities which is against its policy. FIFA then directed that a new court order reinstating Maigari and other NFF executives be obtained before it can lift the ban.

The new court order reinstating the NFF President and other executives was obtained two days ago, Tuesday July 15th, hence the lifting of the ban today.

Maigari and his board will resume their duties tomorrow and stay there until next month's elections when they could be sacked through the ballot, in line with FIFA's policies.

We should not allow nor succumb to the wishes of FIFA. This is a disgrace to Nigeria's judiciary as it exposes it to the world. Do you think French judiciary would change it's judgement because of foreign pressure?

Better. There's a right way to do things. Pity govt needed to be spanked to behave themselves.

This is ridiculing the Judiciary. Before an order of court is made the Judge or Magistrate is supposed to have considered the facts matching side-by-side the laws of the land which forms the basis for instituting the case in the first place. Now, I am no conversant with the facts of this case and the basis for the sack of the executive but my query is why would the court make a U-turn becos FIFA banned Nigeria? Has the circumstance leading to the order of the court abated or was it government's interference after all. If the circumstance has abated that's fine but if it is government's interference (meaning that the government instigated the suit and prevailed on the Judge to make the order) then the Judge has no business being a Judge becos he is not fit to do justice. He should be disgraced and shown the way out by the NJC
