President of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Amaju Pinnick has declared that he would not vie for a third term when his current tenure expires.

Although there has been immense pressure from Nigerian football stakeholders on him to resign with immediate effect from his exalted office following Nigeria’s failure to qualify for the World Cup among other concerns, rumuours that he wanted to contest for a second term still lingered.

Pinnick debunked the report in an interview with Arise TV on Friday, April 8, 2022.

He said: “I’m eligible to run according based on the status. Do I want to run?, It’s a no no, my family is very key to me. They said it’s taking a toll on me and the family. They believed that I’ve done my best and it’s time to move on. It’s a regrettable decision, but it’s the best."

The Delta State born football administrator has been in charge of football in the country since 2014.
