NFF president Pinnick submits nomination for CAF Exco seat.

President of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Amaju Pinnick, has submitted his nomination to contest for a seat on the executive committee of the Confederation of African Football, CAF, in March, twenty- seventeen.

President, Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi and Anjorin Moucharafou of Benin Football Association are the incumbent representatives of Zone Three, which covers Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Togo, Chad, Cote d’Ivoire and Niger as well.

Pinnick, who is in his first term as NFF boss, was not endorsed for the September elections into the FIFA council, which got Nyantakyi to be among the decision makers of the world football governing body.

Former NFF presidents Ibrahim Galadima and Aminu Maigari have in recent times failed to be elected on the CAF executive committee.

Amos Adamu was the last Nigerian to seat on the CAF executive committee before he was slammed a three-year ban by FIFA for breaching bribery rules.
