Chris , President of a faction of the Nigeria Football Federation () Congress, on Friday said his board would have nothing to do with the adjusted 2018 Elective Congress time-table.

The Electoral Committee set up by the Amaju -led faction of the NFF had on Thursday rolled out a new time-table that would have led to election of Executive Committee 2018-2022 on September 20.

Giwa, whose ban was recently lifted, in a statement on Friday, said the time-table should be disregarded, as “it has no place in law and was not sanctioned by our legally-recognised board”.

He warned those still parading themselves as members of the electoral committee to desist from doing so as they were in breach of the laws of the land.

“We want to give the last warning, and strongly too, to the electoral committee members to stop forthwith their illegal actions and face the reality that the legally-recognised board did not sanction this electoral time-table,” he said.

Giwa also warned the committee to stop issuing statements on any purported election or be ready to face the long arm of the law soon.

“Our being quiet should not be misconstrued as ignorance of the law, as the enrollment order of the Federal High Court, Jos dated June 5 states inter alia:

“That an order is granted to First and Second Applicants setting aside all acts, resolutions and or decisions made or taken by the Executive Committee of the NFF purportedly elected on September 30, 2014.

“Including the purported “ban’’ of the Executive Committee elected on Aug. 26, 2014 from all football activities, as illegal, ultra vires, unconstitutional and null and void.’’
