An air of uncertainty is sweeping through the busy city of Kano as the future of football in the state is now in jeopardy following the decision of a federal high court on Friday may 24, stopping the state FA election earlier scheduled to hold on Sunday May 26. Information made available to www.nigeriasportsmouthpiece.org, has it that the incumbent, Rabiu Sharif Inuwa, popularly known as Ahlan among his colleagues, was alleged to have made life unbearable for interested candidates in the lead up to the elections forcing one of the aggrieved persons to file an order restraining the election from taking place on the appointed date.
Mohammed Salsisu Rabiu is an interested party in the lead up to the May 26 election but he feels let down by the fact that forms were not made readily available for interested contestants and decided to seek redress in court. In his ruling, honourable justice Usman Mallam Na’abba sitting at the High court on Number 8 Miller Road complex in Kano, ruled as follows. ‘Order of interim injuction is hereby granted restraining the defendants/respondents jointly either by themselves, their agents, provies, servants, representatives or whosoever acting on their behalf or instructions from conducting an election under the fiat form and into the respective offices of the 4th defendant/respondent scheduled to take place on the 26th day of May in any manner howsoever or whatsoever or in anytime thereafter until after final hearing or determination of the motion on notice pending.before this honourable court. Case is adjourned to 19/07/2019 for hearing of the motion on notice.
