Giwa: Alleged FIFA Ban Threat Is A Media Propaganda

Ambassador Chris Giwa has revealed that the alleged FIFA ban threat is a media propaganda and that the international football body is yet to lodge any complaint with him and his NFF board.

Giwa was recently reinstated as the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) President by the Federal Government (FG) through Sports Minister Solomon Dalung following the April 27 Supreme Court verdict which overthrew the Amaju Pinnick-led board and replaced its personnel with Giwa and his board members.

This development prompted FIFA President Gianni Infantino to warn Nigeria about a potential ban at a press conference in Moscow last week.

Reacting to the alleged ban threat in a chat with NAN in Jos, Giwa said: “The alleged FIFA ban threat is a creation of the media. FIFA has not written to lodge any complaint with us. We only read all these things in the media.”
