ANSFA: Congress annuls decision of appeal committee on Anambra FA election
By Tony Oji
The Congress of Anambra State Football Association (ANSFA) board and Local Football Council (LFC) have nullified the decision of the appeal committee filed by aggrieved candidates after the elections of ANSFA and LFC, Orient Sports reports.
Besides, the elections was held on 29 and 30 October 2020, respectively.
Chikelue Iloenyosi, a sole Chairmanship contestant of State FA, unanimously rejected by delegates after he failed to meet up with the simple majority votes, had appealed the election outcome and the appeal committee ruled that a rerun should be conducted.
But the congress in a communique issued at the end of an extraordinary General Assembly held at the Archbishop AK Obiefuna Retreat and pastoral center Okpuno, said they were nullifying the decision of the appeal committee based on non evidence of payment of appeal fee in violation of Article 33 (4) of the Anambra state football statutes.
The congress, presided over by Victor Aniekwena and attended by 20 out of 23 members, equally ratified the FA board and LFC election and commended the electoral committee.
Orient Sports confirms that they resolved to conduct a bye election to fill the vacant positions in the Anambra state football association board and the local football council in February 2021.
They also passed a vote of confidence on the Anambra state football association board led by Vice Chairman Victor Aniekwena.
Orient Sports understands that ANSFA election failed to produce board Chairman as the sole candidate ganered only one out of 20 votes cast, just as LFC elections failed to produce Chairmen, Vice Chairmen and members into some local football councils.
