REVEALED!!! Why Pinnick Was Removed As CAF Vice President – NFF

Following the removal of Amaju Pinnick,as the 1st Vice President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) on Thursday, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has revealed furnished Igbere TV with the reason.

In a statement made available to Igbere TV by Ademola Olajire, NFF Director of Communications in Abuja, said Pinnick’s tenure along with that of the 2nd and 3rd Vice Presidents ended on Thursday.

Giving reasons for Pinnick’s removal, Olajire said: “In line with Article 22 (4) of the CAF Statutes, every two years when elections are held at the CAF Congress (as took place today), the CAF Executive Committee on the proposal of the CAF President, elects a 1st, 2nd and 3rd Vice President, respectively from among its members.

“Significantly, the renewal of Amaju Pinnick’s tenure was not proposed by the CAF President because of fundamental differences on focus and direction.

“Pinnick accepted the decision of the President as it aligned with his own view having considered matters surrounding the administration of African Football which have dovetailed into the Nigerian Football space.

“He will, however, remain a bonafide member of the CAF Executive Committee to continue with his mandate as such,” the statement said.
