Ask any Kansanga resident here in Kampala and they will assure you Nigerians are quite capable of doing almost anything! Well, the whole world is in shock after a bizarre twist with an attempt to appoint a dead referee for Sunday’s match between Warri Wolves and Giwa FC.
According to scribe Oluwashina Okeleji who works with BBC, the appointment seemed deliberate especially after Chris Giwa who owns Giwa FC continues to challenge Nigerian Football Federation president Amaju Pinnick.
A Nigerian court has ruled Giwa should replace the Fifa-recognised Pinnick and in a move to wrest control he has named the weekend’s top-flight officials.
However, among those selected is Wale Akinsanya, who died in January.
Giwa’s NFF rival group sent notice of its actions to the chief operation officer of the league management company on Wednesday.
