The president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick has revealed that he is eligible to run for a third four-term as the head of the country’s football body but would not.
He stated on Arise TV that he wouldn’t be vying for the position at the forthcoming 2022 NFF elections in June.
Pinnick revealed that his family is influencing his decision to withdraw from the NFF presidential contest.
According to him, his family alleged that his tenure as president has taken its toll on the time he spends with them.
“Am I eligible to run? Yes! I am eligible to run based on our (NFF) status. Do I want to run at this moment? It’s a no-no because my family says so at the moment.”
“My family is very key to me, family first.”
“They say that I’ve put in my all and put in my best. They say that it’s taken a toll on me and taken a toll on the family. They believe that it’s time that I move on”, Pinnick added calling the decision, ‘very regrettable’.
