Temitope Mustapha, Abuja


President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has expressed his support for Nigeria’s bid for re-election into the FIFA Council.

The President’s position was made known in a statement signed by his Spokesperson, Ajuri Ngelale.

Ngelale said President Tinubu supported Mr. Pinnick’s re-election bid to retain his 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.

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