Amaju Pinnick wins NFF election

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Today’s Echo can authoritatively say Amaju Pinnick has been re-elected as NFF president after beating three other contestants in today’s election at Katsina.

The current NFF president got 34 votes while his closest rival, Aminu Maigari polled 8 votes. Former Secretary-General Taiwo Ogunjobi got 2 votes while newbie, Chinedu Okoye got zero. He is now the first NFF President to retain his seat after an election.

During his campaign for the election, Amaju Pinnick, who is the first vice president of CAF said Nigerian football is about 70% self sufficient and if he comes back, it will be 100% self sufficient. He will be expected to ramp up corporate sponsorship of football which had been the hallmark of his first tenure as president.

The NFF announced Pinnick’s victory about an hour ago via a statement available on its twitter handle:

Meanwhile, congratulations have been pouring in for Pinnick. See some below:
