Some football enthusiasts have backed the President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, to contest for the presidency of the Confederation of African Football in 2021.
Football-loving Nigerians said Pinnick possessed the pedigree to challenge for the position of CAF presidency given his achievements in Nigerian, African and global football.
The former Delta FA boss played a significant role in the ouster of Cameroonian Isa Hayatou, who reigned for 29 years, and the emergence of Madagascar’s Ahmad Ahmad as CAF boss in 2017.
Former international, Sylvanus Okpala said those who held the position previously weren’t better than the NFF boss. (Punch)
