Amaju Pinnick wins CAF executive committee seat

NFF president Amaju Pinnick

Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) boss, Amaju Pinnick, has been elected into CAF’s executive committee.

The Delta-born administrator defeated incumbent Moucharafou Anjorin of Benin Republic by 32 to 17 votes on Thursday at the CAF elective congress in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The victory vindicates Pinnick who was totally in support of new CAF president, Ahmad Ahmad, with his rival loyal to Issa Hayatou.

The Nigerian (Western Africa Zone B) joins Musa Bility (Liberia and Western Africa Zone A) Faozi Lekjaa (Morocco and Northern African Zone) and Danny Jordaan (South Africa and Southern African zone) as members elected into the CAF executive committee.
