Nigeria Football Federation President, Amaju Pinnick has 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 as the president of the country’s football association.
Pinnick’s first tenure of four years will come to an end in September with fresh elections into the NFF 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.”
He also spoke on the marketing drive which he claimed has made NFF closer to being financially independent of government funding.
