FIFA President, Infantino sends message to Amaju Pinnick
President of FIFA Gianni Infantino has joined Nigerians to shower encomiums on the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president Amaju Melvin Pinnick as the latter marked his birthday anniversary on Wednesday.
The Executive Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation, which Pinnick has led for over seven years, also hailed the football administrator.
“This past year, which has presented us with many challenges, has nevertheless shown and highlighted the exemplary unity and solidarity of the football world, and I can only reiterate my sincere thanks to you for your efforts, work and contribution within the FIFA Council,” Infantino wrote in a letter to Pinnick.
“The past year has been quite challenging but we are happy to have a leader like Mr Pinnick who has never been shy to lead from the front and courageously confront odds, hurdles and obstacles in the way of Nigeria Football. He is an altruistically visionary leader who never looks back once he decides on the best pathways forward.” NFF General Secretary Dr. Mohammed Sanusi added.
