Sit-Tight Pinnick Dumps Gusau, Picks Shehu Dikko As His 1st Vice President
NFF President Amaju Pinnick has already picked who he will work with more closely should he secure a third term in office – instead of his errand boy Ibrahim Gusau, he will work with Shehu Dikko as his 1st Vice President.
Seyi Akinwunmi has been Pinnick’s 1st Vice President for the past eight years, but he has fallen out big time with his friend and boss that he has now been completely frozen out of the running of the football federation.
Pinnick has severally promised Chairman of Chairmen and Zamfara FA Chairman Gusau the 1st Vice Presidency, but he has now informed Shehu Dikko he should get ready to move up from 2nd Vice President.
Gusau has continued to be the hatchet man for Pinnick, but recently he declared his interest for the NFF top post.
Pinnick and Shehu Dikko have milked the League Management Company (LMC) dry and the NFF President has often said he trust the LMC Chairman the most even after he outsmarted him in 2014 to emerge the head of the football federation.
Despite opposition by the majority of the NFF Congress and the general public, Pinnick is hell bent on extending his disastrous tenure as NFF President.
He is doing everything in and out of the book to defy President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive and the wish of the NFF Congress for NFF Elections to be held in September.
His Game Plan is for the polls to be conducted in January 2023 after he has turned the NFF into his personal estate for eight inglorious years.
