The Executive Committee of the Nigeria Fooball Federation (NFF), have passed a vote of confidence on its President Amaju Pinnick, insisting that its members will always support him.
This information was disclosed by the Chairman, Media and Publicity of the NFF, Hon. Suleiman Yahaya-Kwande, in Abuja, who maintained that the committee have been overwhelmed by Pinnick’s ideas and energy since becoming the NFF boss in September 2014.
He said; “If you patiently take stock of the list of achievements of the NFF in the past one year that Mr. Pinnick has been President, you would give him immense credit. The beauty of it all is that he carries all the members along in everything he is doing, and invariably listens to superior argument,”
“Personally, I enjoy the meetings and I always make sure to be present, because the President makes everyone feel a part of it, he brings up excellent ideas and allows these to be debated. Everyone contributes.”
He also stated that the harmony within the Executive Committee has been exceptional.
He said: “Steadily, we are unveiling the various programs that we have for Nigeria football and we believe that our people will be delighted. Next week, there will be a major pronouncement on our youth development program. But I don’t want to reveal this now.
What we want is the support of everyone. In the last one year, there has been capacity –building programs that have impacted positively on the League and attracted greater recognition from FIFA and CAF for our referees; FIFA elite courses for referees and CAF courses for coaches; prioritization of Coaches and Players’ welfare; robust support for the LMC to continue to improve the NPFL brand; the signing of a kit sponsorship deal with a global brand; intensive drive by the President to sell Nigeria football globally and aggressive marketing drive to attract private sector support.”
