Uduaghan congratulates newly-elected NFF president

Amaju Pinnick

Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State has congratulated the newly-elected President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick.

Mr. Uduaghan described the election of Mr. Pinnick as a continuation of Delta State’s supremacy in sports.

According to him, the victory of Mr. Pinnick at the NFF polls held in Warri, Delta State on Tuesday further reinforced the belief that the administration’s investment in sports was not in vain.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sunny Ogefere, Mr. Uduaghan said the new NFF president has maintained the sports excellence tradition for which the state is known.

He noted that under Mr. Pinnick’s leadership of sports, the state has retained as well as improved on its dominance of sports in the country.

“Amaju has shown traits of commitment, resourcefulness, dedication and leadership right from when he joined the DFA (Delta Football Association) as a member and later as chairman of the Association up to when he emerged as the chairman of the State Sports Commission.

“Besides, Amaju has performed creditably well to date and I have no doubt in my mind that he will excel in this new assignment and take football in Nigeria to an enviable height.”

Mr. Uduaghan urged Mr. Pinnick to remain focused in the new assignment and ensure as a matter of priority that he reconciled everyone to forge one united front for better success.

    Mr. Ademoyo. Thank you for this piece. I am glad I never wasted my time or vote for Jonathan or Buhari. At the right time, God willing we will work together for the greater good of the Yoruba peoples. Too much intellect (like yours) being wasted on Nigeria.

    Thought provoking. Hope and pray that the President and his advisers take heed and lay the foundation for an inclusive and strong nation.
