I Was Not Sacked, My Tenure Merely Expired”- Amaju Pinnick

President of Nigerian Football Federation, Mr Amaju Melvin Pinnick has revealed that he was not sacked as CAF 1st qVice President but his tenure merely expired.

Pinnick took to his social media handle to clear the air that emanated from the CAF Annual General Meeting holding in Cairo, Egypt.

According to him “By now, you must have seen an official statement from the events of today’s Caf Congress in Egypt To reiterate; the term of the 1st, 2nd & 3rd Vice-Presidents of the Confederation of African Football expires after two years, in line with Article 22(4) of the Caf statutes,”

“My renewal was not proposed by the Caf President and I’m in total agreement with that decision as well.

“I accepted the decision of the President as it aligned with my own views, having considered matters surrounding the administration of African Football which has dovetailed into the Nigerian Football space. I’m still a member of the Caf Executive Committee though and I’ll continue to work to ensure that football on the continent gets its deserved value.

“It has been an excellent opportunity to serve as the Number Two football administrator on the continent and my commitment to the game is perpetual while my support for my colleagues in the Executive Committee remains steadfast.

“Hearty congratulations to Omari, Lekja and Danny on their new roles as 1st, 2nd & 3rd Vice-Presidents respectively.”
