FIFA President, Gianni Infantino, says they will not recognise any other person except Nigeria Football Federation President, Amaju Pinnick.

Infantino made this known on Friday in Moscow during a press conference, where he rejected the installation of Chris Giwa as the new NFF President by Nigeria's Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung.

Giwa had obtained a Jos court order to take over the running of affairs at the NFF in compliance with a Supreme Court order.

“The situation is very clear. Pinnick was duly elected some years ago, and FIFA is aware of all this.

“It is also clear to all within the family that there can be no interference in the running of the national federations by any party, especially those outside the football family.

“So, Pinnick is the President of NFF for FIFA, because he is the one elected,’’ he said.
