Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president, Melvin Amaju Pinnick has explained that he is seeking a second term at The Glasshouse, in order to consolidate on the strides he has made during his first tenure.
Speaking ahead of Thursday’s election into the NFF executive committee, Pinnick said he is running for a second spell as president of Nigeria’s soccer governing body in order to finish what he has started.
In a declaration that has been tagged ‘Going For Unfinished Business,’ footballlive.ng can report that Pinnick stressed that he wants a second term in order to conclude all of what he says are the achievements recorded by his administration.
Pinnick goes to battle on Thursday in Katsina with his predecessor, Alhaji Aminu Maigari, former general-secretary, Chief Taiwo Ogunjobi and the proprietor of Bimo FC, Chinedu Okoye.
Ahead of the polls, the former Delta State Football Association chairman said he hopes to take football in Nigeria to greater heights if given a fresh mandate in Katsina.
Pinnick said: “We have been able to make the Federation attractive to corporate bodies due to our accountability and transparency policy and this showed in the number of sponsors available.
“Many more would join the family if re-elected. We have been able to construct football house to five state football associations.
“We are starting Ogun and Oyo very soon, so if elected we shall complete the construction of other state with standard furniture.
“My administration will also ensure stability at the various national teams so that our utmost desire of seeing the country achieve global attention is actualised.”
