The Nigeria Football Supporters Club has made a clarion call to the Federal government to warn the President of Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, to steer clear of its internal affairs.
In a chat with the press, the Public Relations Officer of the NFSC, Afeez Balogun, accused Pinnick of interfering in issues concerning the club.
“For sometime now, Amaju Pinnick, has been involved in a subtle manner to help the dismissed former acting national chairman of the Supporters Club, Vincent Okumagba, to forment trouble and destabilise this club, “Balogun said.
He continued: ” Let me inform Amaju Pinnick and his co-travellers that this club is well over 61 years old and it is also a duly registered and globally recognised non-governmental organisation. Therefore, we are independent and not under the controls of NFF, ” he stated.
He went on to admonish the federal government, the sports ministry and members of the NFF to call Amaju to order. Adding that he should concentrate on how to make Nigerian football better.
” Let Amaju face the issues concerning Nigerian football. We recall the unfortunate case between Amaju and Giwa, which bothers on the issue of legality. Therefore, I want to advise him to stop speaking from both sides of the mouth and not give credence to the illegal actions of Okumagba, ” he urged.
Conclusively, he reaffirmed the commitment of the club to the development of Nigerian football. As it continue to work in tandem with the NFF, in view of its renowned position as the 12th player of the national teams.
