  • They should quickly send a memo to the bull in the china shop, Oga Dalung and Chris Giwa to know the updates or whatssup. And why didn’t Giwa contest so he can be beaten once and for all and he and his puppeteer Dalung can let peace reign?

  • Wallai, I too was looking up to see if Giwa participated. Giwa will now start running up and down causing unnecessary problems for our football, I’m from Plateau but i’m so so against what Giwa and Dalung are doing. I just hope they’ll let sleeping dogs lie.

    This is a land slide victory,Amaju deserves it, his first tenure was a departure from what NFF use to be, big congratulations to him. Giwa and Dalung can go and hug transformer.

  • Let’s pause and ask ourselves what did Pinnick achieve?
    Failure to qualify for age grade competitions.
    Failure of women football to move forward.
    Failure of the Super Eagles to qualify for world cup second round .
    Poor domestic league.
    Poor exposure of home based players.
    Hiring a Super Eagles coach with no pedigree.
    Giwa and Dalung are rubbish people but Pinnick has not achieve big things with the football of Nigeria.

      Unreasonable talk by an unreasonable being. Dalung and Giwa’s cousin. If you are hating Pinnick cuz of Coach GR, Kindly hug jump to the nearest lagoon close to you. You are the one that has no single pedigree. Amaju pinnick is the BEST NFF President Nigeria has ever had. Pinnick and his group are showing to the world what football administration really is. Carry go pinnick

    • @Ash Williams, it may look as if Pinnick has not achieve to you. But for the years in succession, i can see our dear Supper Eagles playing quality football. Though they may not be there yet but the future is bright. When you are growing you don’t crucify yourself because you have not achieved what professionals a doing.

      sustainability is key and that is what we are getting through the hard way from Pinnick and GR.

      Congratulations AP. Long live Nigerian Football.

      @Giwa and Darlung, please leave us alone.

  • Maybe if there were no those silly interruptions from the “so-called minister of sports” and his Giwa, Pinnick might have done better, ticking those areas mentioned.

    I am so excited I decided to write my comments in capital letters: CONGRATULATIONS SIR! YOU DESERVE A SECOND TERM. YOU ARE THE BEST WE HAVE EVER HAD.

  • Congratulation. You tried in your first time but you can still do better. You are the best so far in the history of Nigerian football. One thing that really make me love Pinnick is his contributions to the present Super Eagle level. For his effort in getting Nigerian football stars in abroad to come and play for Nigeria. Super Eagle is now loaded with young stars.

    Once again, Congratulation!

    I’m loving this news. Congratulations to Amaju. You thoroughly deserve to be given a second term. His first tenure was rocked by oafs like Giwa and a joke of a minister called Dalung. Now he can focus on moving Nigeria’s football forward. My love for my fellow ‘Oshaaree’ brother grew tremendously when he pulled a political masterpiece by bringing the FIFA president to Nigeria for the first time.

    Even in the face of financial crises in the country SuperEagles went to the WorldCup for the first time in history without any bonus issue. Now both the Golden Eaglets and the Flying Eagles have qualified for their respective AFCON. Foreign born Nigerian footballers are pledging their future for the SuperEagles.

    Allahu akbar. What meant to be will be. When God says yes, who can say no.
    A big congratulations to the Mr. President Pinnick and his vice Mr. Akinwunmi.

    However, when they pushed you, don’t pushed yourself. Mr. Aminu Maigari
    and Taiwo Ogunjobi have putting themselves in a big shame. This is what we need in Nigeria.

    Mr. Aminu Maigari and Mr. Taiwo Ogun Were allowed to be used by some groups of people which have spoiled their images from today on.

    We all have to be sincere with ourselves in country so that we can move forward. Sentiments apart, we need to put our house in place so that Nigeria can go to the higher level. God bless Nigeria!!!

    Congratulations!Amaju Pinnick.We are blessed to have you a second term in our football administration apparently continuity is the key.
    Sabotage was the reason it looked like he underachieved quoting a forum member.Yes he was sabotaged by Giwa and for that reason we couldn’t qualify in two consecutive nations cup tournaments.
    The heat at that point was too much from Giwa which affected the performances of the national teams as we were threatened constantly with a ban by Fifa which led to uncertainties and low productivity from the playing personal.
    I hope Buhari does a cabinet reshuffle so that Dalung would administer elsewhere and leave our football to grow in harmony.
    God bless Nigeria!

    Congratulations Mr Pinnick for this hard earned victory. But I wanna sincerely recommend that you use this second term in office for various developmental programmes for Nigerian football. Am not in anyway supporting lawnessness or exective recklessness in whatever form but try and ensure probity, accountability and transparency in all you do to further encourage private sector participation. Let players welfare in all tier of our national leagues vuz a viz NPFL, NNL, NNWL, NWPL among others so that the “major actors ” can fall back on something and also sustain their various personal commitments. Lets us revive the old Principal Cup among our secondary school, NNPC U13 football competitions among others to harness raw talents from the grassroots. Its my prayer that way me never have a lair, bias, sentimental and tribalistic minister of sports again after Solomon Lalung….I recommend that Giwa and his cohorts including the double tongue lalung come to our area and hug the high tension transformer so there can be peace in our football fraternity. To the ridiculous winners of ill fated 2018 NPFL Lobi Stars I wanna say “” Ewu mbe loko longe””……
