Speaking in a radio interview, new comerAnjorin said:

“Pinninewcomer he has only two years of his mandate (as NFF president),”

“It’s an election, and Pinnick is my small boy in African football.

“Life is a school and we need to learn and respect ourselves.”

“It’s a lie for Nigeria to dominate the region and the other countries to only support them,” he said.

“You cannot use the big name of Nigeria (to bully the other countries)

“They have been on the committee for 12, 14 years. This is not their birthright.

“Nigeria should support me because I have supported the country.

“(Also), I’m a Yoruba man from Abeokuta, my older brother holds Nigerian nationality, and Benin and Nigeria are the same.”
