NFF Presidency: I’m waiting for God’s guidance — Pinnick

The President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick has said he is waiting on God’s guidance before he contests for the federation presidency.

It will be noted that he was first elected in September 2014. On 20 September 2018, Pinnick was re-elected as the NFF President.

In a recent media parley, the FIFA council member said he is yet to make up his mind as he is fully concentrating on qualifying Nigeria for the World Cup.

“I do not own this country and whoever is going to succeed me will be elected, but we are working hard and consultations are still on. I have a family that believe that they’ve not been seeing me too often and that’s why I take my wife almost everywhere now.

“I am still talking and my mind is still as it was but my concentration right now is to ensure we qualify for the World Cup and do well at the Nations Cup. There is a lot of determining factors but trust me I am also waiting for God’s guidance. I do a lot of work for CAF and FIFA and I am an integral part of the two bodies,” he said.

He further said Abuja is the natural home of the Super Eagles but the team can play anywhere in the country.

“Naturally, Abuja is their home but also everywhere in Nigeria is their home. They can go anywhere just as England did before Wembley. We are happy Abuja is back and it is going to be our first priority towards having them play the final qualifying game in March in Abuja. We can go anywhere to play depending on certain factors but Abuja is their natural home,” he said.
