FIFA Council: Amaju Pinnick is recommended for reelection by Tinubu

Posted by

Bola Tinubu, the president, has publicly endorsed Nigeria’s candidacy for reelection to the FIFA Council.

In between FIFA Congresses, the FIFA Council serves as the organization’s main decision-making body.

37 people were chosen for the council’s four-year renewable term by the FIFA Congress.

Amaju Pinnick, two-term President of the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF, was elected to the council in March 2021—the third Nigerian after the late Oyo Orok Oyo and Dr Amos Adamu.

Pinnick is seeking re-election to the council, and President Tinubu supports the bid for Nigeria to retain its seat in the council.
