Global reckoning for Nigeria

In the next NFF Awards in January, I can tell you we have the president of UEFA who is the president of my committee in FIFA,” Pinnick said in an interview on Channels Television.

He knows the contribution of Nigeria to UEFA through the Champions League and wants to give something back for Nigeria.”

Pinnick stated this while reiterating the strong relationship Nigerian football administration has with the world football.

Nigeria we have recognition, Nigeria now have we have global reckoning in football administration,” the NFF boss added.

A Nigerian is the only African member of the FIFA Ethics committee, a Nigerian is the president of CAF Appeals  Committee and because of that, we have relationships globally.

“When we call on them, they get ready to come. In our last NFF Awards, it was the first time you will see CAF and FIFA President attending.”

No date has been set yet for the 2019 NFF Awards as all NFF’s focus is on the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
