According to information available to this website, Pinnick was handed a letter from FIFA to proceed to Accra in company of three others in order to install the committee.

Others on the entourage include; the Director, Member Associations of the Confederation of African Football Veron Mosengo Omba and Mr Nicola Luca who is the Manager Member Associations are part of the team headed by the Nigeria FA boss.
