On expiry of the deadline, some people were still claiming to have been elected and were occupying the NFF premises.
“Given the current circumstances, the FIFA Emergency has decided to set a new deadline of 8 September 2014 at 08.00 CET. Should the new deadline not be respected, the NFF will be automatically suspended until the board claiming to be elected vacates the premises of the NFF and the NFF General Secretary is able to perform his work without interference.

Chris Giwa won the election but the Refree’s union and Nigerian club union along with major football unions in the nation refused to acknowledge him as the NFF leader.
