Tinubu Advocates for Pinnick’s Re-election to FIFA Council

President Bola Tinubu has voiced strong support for Nigeria’s bid for re-election to the FIFA Council, the main decision-making body of the organization between FIFA Congresses.

The FIFA Council, consisting of 37 members elected by the FIFA Congress for renewable four-year terms, plays a crucial role in shaping the future of global football.

Amaju Pinnick, who has served two terms as President of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), was elected to the Council in March 2021. He is the third Nigerian to hold this position, following the late Oyo Orok Oyo and Dr. Amos Adamu.

As Pinnick seeks re-election, President Tinubu’s endorsement underscores Nigeria’s determination to maintain its influential presence within the global football governance structure.
