Tinubu Supports Nigeria’s FIFA Council Re-election Bid

President Bola Tinubu has expressed strong support for Nigeria’s bid for re-election into the FIFA Council.

The President’s support for the county’s candidate for re-election was contained via a statement issued by his spokesman, Chief Ajuri Ngelale.

The FIFA Council is the principal decision-making organ of the organization in the intervals of the FIFA Congress.

The Council comprises 37 members elected by the FIFA Congress for a renewable term of four years.

Amaju Pinnick, two-term President of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), was elected into the Council in March 2021 – the third Nigerian after the late Oyo Orok Oyo and Amos Adamu.

Pinnick is seeking re-election into the Council, and President Tinubu supports the bid for Nigeria to retain its seat in the Council.
