As the raging controversy of the Ambassador Chris Giwa faction hots up, there are clear indications of two fresh contempt charges hanging on the fragile neck of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and the League Management Company (LMC), according to former Board member, Chief Effiong Johnson, while another N150 million furniture scandal rocks the federation again.

Johnson, who was in the team of the Giwa faction that had the meeting with the minister in his National Stadium office in Abuja, disclosed to that, “my lawyers should be concluding filing the papers before a Federal High Court in Lagos and Abuja respectively this week. They should be served next week.”

According to him, “Both the NFF and the LMC are acting in contempt of various court orders. We are approaching the court to seek the committal to prison of the current members of the NFF Board and the LMC. There are court orders that declared them illegal, null and void.

“I am sure by early next week the persons involved would have been served to come show reason why they should not be guests at the various prisons in the land. The era of impunity is over and gone. This is the era of the Rule of Law. Doing things right is the new singsong.”

Asked what are the suits in which the fresh contempt proceedings are emerging from, he promised, “I will ensure that as soon as my lawyers file matter, you will be one of the few to have it first.”
