‘Concerned’ FA Chairmen Snub Pinnick’s Offer Of ‘A Good Time’ In Morocco
“Concerned” State FA Chairmen, who now make up the majority of the NFF Congress, have rejected an offer of all-expense-paid trip to this year’s WAFCON in Morocco (logo PICTURED) by embattled NFF President Amaju Pinnick.
The Chairmen, who the NFF will prefer to call “Rebel FA Chairmen”, described the offer of a good time in Morocco as “a Greek gift” and have resolved that what they really expect of Pinnick is to convene a Congress to chart the way forward for Nigeria Football.
Elections into the NFF Executive Committee are due in September.
Interestingly, Pinnick’s offer was not extended to several of the FA Chairmen, who were tagged as “ring leaders” of the revolt against him.
They are the FA Chairmen of Imo, Rivers, Katsina and Bayelsa States.
An enraged Pinnick has already dismissed Imo FA boss Amanze Uchegbulam as “leader of ungrateful FA Chairmen”.
Pinnick has often enjoyed the support of the NFF Congress with such offers, but that will not be the case this time as the FA Chairmen have vowed not to be lured by this bait from a man who is struggling to stay afloat in the scheme of things.
