Pinnick reacts after losing CAF VP seat

Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) boss Amaju Pinnick has reacted after he was removed as vice president of CAF.

Pinnick was ousted on Thursday at CAF’s exco committee meeting held in Egypt.

In his reaction, Pinnick appreciated the opportunity to serve in that capacity and congratulated Constant Omari, who is now CAF's first vice president, Morocco's Fouzi Lekjaa (second vice) and South Africa's Danny Jordaan the third.

“It has however been an excellent opportunity to serve as the number two football administrator in the entire African continent and my commitment to the game is perpetual while my support for my colleagues in the Executive Committee remains steadfast.

"I congratulate Omari, Lekjaa and Danny on the assumption of their new roles as 1st, 2nd and 3rd Vice CAF Presidents respectively."

Pinnick had served as the first vice-president of Caf since July 2018.

Caf has been plagued by a series of scandals in recent times, while president Ahmad Ahmad was arrested and detained in France in June.
