Pamodzi congratulates Pinnick on his FIFA seat
Pamodzi has congratulated President of Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick on his election into FIFA Executive Council.
Pinnick defeated Malawian FA President, Walter Nyamilandu, by 43 votes to eight during the CAF General Assembly held in Rabat, Morocco on Friday.
Chief Executive Officer of Pamodzi, Mike Itemuagbor, says in a statement that Pinnick’s election into the decision making organ of world governing body for football is a reward for his hard work and dedication to the development of football in Nigeria and the African continent.
“I wholeheartedly congratulate Amaju Pinnick on his well deserved election. The manner of his victory shows his popularity among his colleagues in the Confederation of African Football executive council and congress.
“At Pamodzi we are not surprised by the giant leap Pinnick has made since the beginning of the last decade, rising from being the Chairman of Delta State Football Association and later Chairman, Delta State Sports Commission in 2010 before his election as President of the Nigeria Football Federation and later one of CAF’s Vice Presidents.
“Like Leonardo da Vinci said, people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things. This Pinnick has demonstrated and his leadership of Nigeria Football has opened up the federation to corporate Nigeria.”
The Pamodzi boss thanked the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari and the Sports Minister, Sunday Dare for the unflinching support given to the NFF President and congratulates both and indeed Nigerians on his success.
“This victory is for Nigerians. Pinnick is a symbol of Nigerians as a hardworking, intelligent and honest people. It is a big boost to our image as a nation that we have men and women of great honour and intellect who can compete for positions worldwide and be successful.
“Once again, congratulations on your well-deserved success.”
