GFA President: “Pinnick Should Rethink His Decision”

President of the Ghana Football Association, GFA, Kurt Okraku has expressed shock that his Nigerian counterpart Amaju Melvin Pinnick has decided not to run for a third term as President of the Nigeria Football Federation.

Pinnick is statutorily permitted to seek a third term in office, but he has come under intense pressure lately after Nigeria failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and has confirmed that he won’t be contesting again due to family advise.

However, GFA boss Okraku is convinced Pinnick has more to offer Nigerian football and has urged Nigerians to support the Delta State-born to take the country to greater heights.

Monitored by Naija News on Brila FM, He said: “That’s unfortunate if he (Amaju Pinnick) really said he is quitting the NFF.

“I would be one of those people who would go up to him to tell him to rethink that decision.

“I know Pinnick loves Nigeria; he loves Nigerian football. He wants to see the Super Eagles dominate African football. That’s his dream and it’s the dream of every Nigerian, including the President of the country.

“In this challenging period, it calls for cool heads. It also calls for everybody to stand with each other. This is time to offer solutions and Nigeria will get back to its feet.”
