FIFA President, Infantino, Congratulates Amaju Pinnick On Big CAF Portfolio

President of world football–governing body, FIFA, has specially congratulated the President of Nigeria Football Federation, Mr. Amaju Pinnick on the latter’s ascension to the position of the second most important personality in African football.

Pinnick, who is also Vice President of Africa’s Zone West B and Member of the
Organizing Committee for FIFA Competitions, was nominated for the exalted position during the latter stages of the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals in Russia. He also commissioned six
matches at the FIFA World Cup.

In his letter dated 3 August 2018, Infantino wrote: “Allow me to extend to you my warmest congratulations on
your recent election as CAF 1st Vice President. I have no doubt that
your considerable experience, combined with your management and sports
knowledge and your human qualities, will help you to overcome all future
challenges in your new position in the service of the African football community.

“I am convinced that, as CAF 1st Vice President, you will be able to bring your outstanding contribution to CAF and FIFA, but most importantly to the development of our beautiful game, which we both love so much.

“I look forward to continuing to
work with you and seeing you soon to congratulate you in person.”

  • This is good for the sport in Nigeria. More reasons for Ambassador Chris Giwa to gladly accept the hand of reconciliation extended to him by the Amaju Pinnick controlled board as Amaju Pinnick and FIFA President are friends and friend talk to friend and friend listen. Amaju Pinnick can help left the FIFA ban or drastically reduced it. Giwa should not think it is a sign of fear from the board but it is a sign of let’s help our fellow Nigerian for he has suffered a lot. There is even a throw in- Giwa fc will immediately be reabsorbed into the league. It’s a win-win situation for Giwa and rest of mind for Amaju Pinnick.
