Pinnick lists advantages for Nigeria if he remains NFF president


Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, President, Amaju Pinnick has provided some reasons it is an advantage to Nigeria if he remains at the helms of football affairs in the country.

Pinnick said his prominence at FIFA and CAF as well as his drive to make the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, financially independent are the main reasons he wishes to continue.

His first tenure of four years as NFF boss will come to an end in September with fresh elections into the executive committee in Katsina.

The NFF boss said he believes he has done enough to be elected for a second four-year tenure.

“I’m in CAF, I’m on the FIFA organising committee and will even work for FIFA in Saint Petersburgs,” he said on a television interview programme monitored by SCORENigeria

“There have been more than 10 pluses for Nigeria with me in CAF and some things are better not said.”
