Two-time President, Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, says he hasn’t made up his mind to seek reelection for a third term as head of the country’s football federation, adding that he will make his decision known this week.
The FIFA Council member, who is winding down his second term in office, is reportedly seeking a third term in office, ahead of the NFF elections in September.
Last week, several reports quoted the football administrator saying he had received several calls from “very influential Nigerians” to seek re-election.
However, Pinnick, in an interview , admitted that there had been pressure on him to contest in the forthcoming elections, but added that he was yet to decide on whether to vie or not.
The NFF boss was in Arusha, Tanzania last week for the Confederation of Africa Football’s 44th General Assembly.
The NFF president’s latest comments are contrary to his stand in April, after the Super Eagles crashed out of World Cup qualification.
While refusing to bow to pressure to resign then, following the team’s failure to qualify for Qatar 2022, Pinnick stated he won’t run for a third term.
