Abuja – The House of Representatives’ Committee on Sports on Tuesday constituted a committee to harmonise resolutions of its meeting with the two factions in the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) crisis.
Chairman of the committee, Bukar Lawan, disclosed this after a meeting with the two NFF factions led by Chris Giwa and Amaju Pinnick in Abuja on Tuesday.
Lawan said the committee’s report on the resolutions would be presented to the House during plenary.
“We have concluded on what the House mandate us to do. We invited all of them and what is left for the committee is to report back to the House at plenary.
“Today is the end of the meeting because we have heard from both Giwa and Pinnick.
“Anything the House decides upon will be binding on them. We did not take side and very soon there will be something from the committee,’’ he said.
NAN reports that the committee had last week expressed optimism that the factions would cooperate with it in its task.
It had been mandated by the House of Representatives to find a lasting solution to the lingering crisis in the country’s football governing body.
NAN reports that the crisis was triggered by a Jos High Court ruling which purportedly sacked the current NFF board led by Pinnick and asked the Giwa-led board to take charge.(NAN)
