Retired Female Nigerian Judge gets FIFA appointment

A resigned Nigerian Judge, Ayotunde Phillips, has been appointed into the recently constituted FIFA Ethics Committee at the Congress of the world football governing body taking place in Manama, Bahrain.

The 68-year-old who studied law at the University of Lagos, was called to the Nigerian Bar in 1974 and spent her necessary National Youth Service Corps year in the then East Central State of Nigeria.

The new FIFA nominee was the fourth female Chief Judge of Lagos State.

She resigned from the High Court Bench in July 2014 upon the achievement of the statutory retirement age of 65 years.

She had by then served the Lagos State Government for a long time out of which 20 years were spent on the High Court Bench.

Justice Ayotunde was the Chairman of the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission until her most recent appointment.

The Nigeria Football Federation has as of now complimented her.

The Federation, through its Twitter account, stated: "Congrats to Nigerian Judge, Justice Ayotunde Phillip who has quite recently been named into the FIFA Ethics Committee."
