The President of the Nigerian Football Federation Amaju Pinnick has been elected into the Fifa Council after a landslide victory.

Pinnick defeated Malawian FA president Walter Nyamilandu by 43 votes to eight during the CAF General Assembly that held at the Royal Ballroom of the Sofitel Hotel in Morocco’s administrative capital on Friday, March 12.

Four of Pinnick’s five rivals, Lamin Kaba Bajo (The Gambia), Wallace Karia (Tanzania), Nick Mwendwa (Kenya) and Andrew Kamanga (Zambia) threw in the towel before the vote and opted to back the Nigerian. General Secretary of Nigeria Football Federation, Dr Mohammed Sanusi casted Nigeria’s vote.

Pinnick becomes the third Nigerian elected into the prestigious council after Oyo Orok Oyo (1980-1988) and Amos Adamu (2006-2010).

The position is for a four-year term, and automatically makes Pinnick a Member of the Executive Committee of the Confederation of African Football.

Reacting to his victory, Pinnick on his IG page, wrote;

”I thank God Almighty for this day. FIFA COUNCIL dream is now a reality.”
