CAF Appoints Amaju Pinnick 1st Vice-President

By Adeboye Amosu:

Nigeria Football Federation President, Amaju Pinnick, has been appointed the new Ist vice president of the Confederation of African Football, CAF, reports Completesportsnigeria. com.

Pinnick’s appointment according to a letter signed by CAF general secretary, Amr Fahmy, dated July 5, 2018 was necessitated by the resignation of Kwesi Nyantakyi, who was also formerly the president of Ghana Football Federation, from the post.

‘’Following the resignation of the 1st Vice President, Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi, CAF President, after consulting the members of the Emergency Committee, appointed Mr Amaju Melvin Pinnick as 1st Vice President,” reads the letter.

“This decision is immediately applicable, in accordance with article 27 para 2 of the Statutes, which will be ratified by the Executive Committee in its session scheduled on the 27 ad 28 September 2018. We thank you for kindly taking note’’.

The appointment is another feather to Amaju’s cap as he currently head the Africa Cup of Nations committee which is in charge of organising the continent’s flagship event.

He is also a member of the Organising Committee of the FIFA World Cup.

    Met Taiwo Awoniyi wife and twin sister.Wow they are amazing people.Was glad to have a selfie.
    I told him to please come to our aid we need a firing striker not a misfiring one like Ighalo.
    He told me work permit is the only reason he can’t feature for Liverpool and a loan move is likely in the new season. I wished him luck though.

    Mr Amaju pinnick has made nigeria and the African continent proud. What eale do you wants, it’s obvious that Nigerian hate good things and positive development. For once this man has brought dignity to us in the world Of football. kudos to our own Amaju, the sky is your beginning.keep sailing the flag of Naija,

    Mr. Pinnick is whithout doubt the best NFF president we have ever had. That is why I was so disappointed with Rohr and the outcome of our World Cup campaign. I thought the reward for Pinnick’s hard work would have been a good showing at the mundial.

    As for Giwa and his god fathers in politics, they should know that they have failed. Even Buhari cannot stop the advancement of this man. Let us see how Giwa can oversee a non existent association that will Soon be suspended by CAF and FIFA.

    Where are those idiots calling Amaju P a corrupt fellow? Dr AP you have a good heart towards the development of football in Nigeria but our corrupt system wants to tarnish your image,rubbish giwa and dalung will now need your assistance. Congrats Dr Amaju P

  • It’s so clear that Giwa and Dalung does not have any positive intention for Nigerian Football. Just gross selfish and personal abition that is killing all facets of Nigerian government.

    Giwa Leave Nigerian Football alone, Shame on you.
