President Tinubu Backs Pinnick’s Re-election Bid into FIFA


President Bola Tinubu has expressed his support for Nigeria’s bid for re-election into the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA)Council.

Recall that Mr. Amaju Pinnick, a two-term President of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), was elected into the Council in March 2021, making him the third Nigerian after the late Oyo Orok Oyo and Dr. Amos Adamu.

Mr. Pinnick is seeking re-election into the Council, hence President Tinubu’s support for the bid for Nigeria to retain its seat in the Council.

The FIFA Council is the principal decision-making organ of the organization in the intervals of the FIFA Congress.

The Council comprises 37 members elected by the FIFA Congress for a renewable term of four years
