The Nigeria Football Federation on Thursday appealed against the decision of the Jos High Court to re-list a case brought against the Federation by Obinna Ogba and Yahaya Adama.

Chairman of the NFF Technical and Development Committee, Chris Green, a lawyer, said the NFF decided to appeal against the re-listing of the case for hearing because the matter was out of time and the plaintiffs voluntarily discontinued the case in the first place.

“We went to court simply to appeal against the re-listing of the case. The case was struck out after the plaintiff voluntarily withdrew. What we are challenging is the re-listing of the case, and not any order that the court has made by the Honourable Judge. The Honourable Judge made it clear that he only restored the Order striking out the case.

“There is no order that we need to appeal against. We are only appealing against the re-listing of the case for hearing, because for us, the circumstances have changed and so many things are no longer the same. We are saying the fellows who went to court can only file a fresh suit because this one can no longer fly.”
