CAF Election: You Are On Your Own, Sports Minister Dalung Tells NFF Boss Pinnick

Youth and Sports Minister, Barrister Solomon Dalung has countered the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF president, Amaju Pinnick on his position on the forthcoming CAF election, stating that Pinnick’s position is personal to him.
 “As it is today, Nigeria has not taken a stand on the candidature of anybody contesting the presidency and should not be misrepresented by anybody. Those aspiring into various offices of CAF are doing so as individuals and are advised not to use the name or image of Nigeria in other to boost their own political fortunes.

“We will support what is good for football but we will exercise our rights through the laid down democratic process as guaranteed by the rules of the game.

“We are appealing to all candidates to go about seeking their support free of rancour and acrimony but should take the interest of the region into consideration. We wish them the best and God bless Nigeria “ Dalung said.
