President, Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, has stated that the crises rocking the two factions of the Super Eagles Supporters club seems irreconcilable
Speaking to a close source in footballlive.ng Pinnick who said he had no special attachment to any group but admitted working with Prince Vincent Okumagba faction because they properly coordinate themselves and support the national team in a goodly manner.
I have tried as much as i can to foster peace between them but seems not to be working.
When I came into the office in the first tenure, I did everything humanly, materially, physically possible to bring them together but they are like two live wires put together against each other .
So, I know that these are differences that are Irreconcilable and I don’t want that to affect our national team, so we decide who we wish to work with.
I don’t have any preferred group but we support the one that have been supportive genuinely, so if they make any request we will also support them.
He added that he has respect for Dr. Rafiu Ladipo for his support and years of experience in the field.
Honestly, we respect, love and regard Dr Rafiu Ladipo for supporting the team for a very long time.
There has been disgruntled members of the supporters before the infamous elections in 2016 that saw Okumagba faction split from Rafiu Ladipo led Supporters club.
