THE BIGGEST LIE YET: Pinnick Claims Infantino To Hand Over FIFA To Him
Amaju Pinnick has made the biggest claim yet that he is gunning for a third term as NFF President because FIFA President Gianni Infantino has promised to hand over the world football governing body to him after he has seen through his second term in office.
Infantino is seeking a second term as FIFA boss after which he will have to step down going by the FIFA Statutes, which now allows for a maximum of two terms for the president.
A source told www.insideglasshouse.com: “Pinnick has been telling State Governors and powerful Government officials that Infantino plans to hand over to him and that is why he is now running for a third term as NFF.
“He has argued that it’s a chance in a lifetime and that Nigeria must not allow it to slip away.
“He will therefore have to remain as NFF President to grab this opportunity.”
FIFA Council Member Pinnick rose to become CAF 1st Vice President, but then CAF President Ahmad Ahmad sacked him for disloyalty
He later claimed that former Sports Minister Solomon Dalung conspired with some other Nigerians to stop him from emerging as CAF President.
