CAF Seat: Momoh Solicit Massive Support For Pinnick’s Bid



A renown sports philanthropist Frank Momoh has called on Nigeria to give full support to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president Amaju Pinnick’s bid to secure a seat in CAF executive committee.

The CAF Committee election which has been fixed for March with the NFF president representing the West Africa Zone B seat against fellow neighbouring Benin Republic’s Anjorin Moucharafou, who defeat former NFF chairman Aminu Maigari in 2013.

Frank Momoh, who is known for promoting grassroots football, athletics, wheelchair basketball and several sports believes Nigerian football would benefit massively if Pinnick secures a CAF Executive seat.Speaking in Lagos Yesterday, Momoh said:


“Pinnick is one of the next generation of administrators, and his emergence as the NFF president two years ago has really brought great innovation and quality leadership to our football,” the chairman of FROT Group said.

“He has the zeal and passion for the game, and I want Nigerians to rally around him in his bid to secure a seat in CAF. His membership will take African football to a greater level.”

I know that Pinnick faces a herculean task because his opponent (Moucharafou) is vastly experienced, but with undiluted support from Nigerians, especially football stakeholders, he will triumph.Momoh added.

However, the 2013 contest between former NFF chairman Aminu Maigari and Anjorin was a total run-off, as both candidates failed to get the stipulated 50% of total votes cast in the first ballot. Maigari having 19 votes to Anjorin 35 votes, while football lovers were of the opinion that the NFF chairman didn’t get enough support before embarking on the Executive Committee seat.

“I want Nigerians to know that no one is perfect in life, so they should forget some of the national teams’ setbacks and look at the many significant changes Pinnick has brought to our football in the last two years. He has so much to give, but he needs the support of everyone to build the house.”
