The president of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Amaju Pinnick has confirmed that he won’t be contesting for the position after his tenure expires this year.
He made this known in an interview with ARISE TV, where he said that he would like to spend more time with his family.
Recently, there has been pressure from Nigerian stakeholders and fans for him to resign, following the Super Eagles’ failure to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.
“I’m eligible to run based on the status. Do I want to run ?, It’s a no-no, my family is very key to me, they said it’s taking a toll on me and the family.
“They believed that I’ve done my best and it’s time to move on . It’s a regrettable decision, but it’s the best,” Pinnick told Arise TV.
