Pinnick Loses Face Again Over Tenure Elongation As NFF Elections Fixed For September 30 in Benin City
Amaju Pinnick (PICTURED today at Congress in Lagos) may have survived threats of an impeachment, but the failure of his camp to get their way for the NFF Elections to be conducted next year was a big slap on the face of the embattled NFF President as the polls have now been fixed for September 30 in Benin City.
Right up to early this morning, the Pinnick camp spearheaded by Shehu Dikko, who had boasted he had as many as 35 delegates to support a tenure extension, tried everything to get their way.
This was after Pinnick wrote FIFA for a tenure elongation without recourse to the Congress.
Pinnick himself begged Stakeholders by 4am today that the Elections now be held by October 20, 2022.
That was also shot down by the Congress to further demonstrate how much Pinnick has lost the highest decision-making body of Nigeria Football.
At the Congress, he cut the figure of a man without a following and who has been left to his own fate.
The Congress has now endorsed September 30, 2022, for the Elections in Benin City, Edo State to put a stop to disastrous eight years of misrule by Pinnick.
Before the main business of the General Assembly, Pinnick went before the gathering to restate his commitment not to contest the Elections.
