To have a rich history and be proud of it is a strong heritage. To want to re-write history is fool hardy. The latter is what the Japanese call sciolists and advise we should ignore because they are the biggest of fools.
The Hausas say “ban gwan kwali, uban dutse” which the Yoruba equivalent is “ogulutu baba oko” and the adulterated English version is “those who live in glass house don’t throw stones”. If anyone follows threads here well, I had reason to question the hordes of ‘lawyers’ in the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF). Today, I can reveal that Christopher Green was the one who, on behalf of Sharks FC of Port-Harcourt, took the NFA to court after instigating fans against Rangers of Enugu to cause some confusion in the league.
I saw the court papers in the course of looking for another document and laughed myself hoarse wondering what they in the Glass House now say about taking football matters to court. Yet, this same Green (wonder if it were not he only read law courses) would chastise NANF and others who went to courts of the land because he’s now in the NFF (twice declared illegal by courts of the land). Chris Green was the secretary of Sharks FC when he instigated fans of the club against Rangers International FC of Enugu leading the NFA to descend on Sharks. Does Mr. Green think that our memory is so short? Or if we do not keep records?
I read his affidavits and feel like many of those in the saddle of football today are not just comedians of grave error. Is the same Green not the law illiterate who wrote the Police that I caused libel and defamation against the NFF? I have just briefed a lawyer to “sue the bastards” like a popular lawyers’ sticker screamed in advise. Their legal troubles will in a matter of days increase by one. I am going to court against them.
There can never be peace where justice is not served.
