Stay clear of NFF crisis, Supersport warned
A South Africa satellite television outfit, Supersport has been warned to desist from denigrating Nigeria’s law and to stop its meddlesomeness in the country’s football after it was alleged that the organisation told an Arbitration looking into its contract’s disagreement with the Total Promotion Limited that the Mr. Chris Giwa has been banned from football matters by the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
In a terse protest letter to the Chief Executive officer of Super Sport, Branmdson Foot, the NFF group led by Giwa warned that it would not hesitate to drag Super Sport to the Nigerian court for meddlesome in what is an internal matter in the country.
“We note from our records that your organization (SuperSport) also have meddlesome penchant in the internal football matters in ways which are detrimental to the core objectives of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
“A worrying example is your witness statement made by you before the arbitration in London wherein you made very disparaging comments about Nigeria, a country from which your organization enjoys substantial commercial success,” the letter stated. “Because of the weight of this your witness statement, we need to quote the lines containing your most negative, disrespecting witness statement: “knowing Nigeria can be a tough and litigious jurisdiction to do business in ...”
“The NFF shall be taking up this your negative and most disrespecting statement on Nigeria with higher diplomatic and political authorities soonest,” the letter signed by Adama Yahaya further said.
