Former Liberia FA boss and Confederation of African Football(CAF) executive committee member, Musa Bility says Nigerians should be proud to have a football administrator like NFF president Amaju Pinnick in the wake of recent happenings in the top ranks of Africa’s supreme football governing body.
Bility, in an exclusive chat with brila.net described Pinnick as selfless in his service as a CAF top shot and has taken Nigeria to very great heights in football administration.
“The worst decision ever made by CAF president, Ahmad was not to have kept Amaju as the first vice president.
“Amaju is a symbol of unity and a rallying point whenever there was any issue amongst members, only God knows what will happen now but Nigerians should be proud of this man who has brought greatness to Nigeria,” he stated.
Bility equally shed more light on the recent happenings in CAF and the CAF-FIFA collaboration, stating that the apex football body in Africa requires a very thorough forensic audit and even with the body enmeshed in serious financial scandals, Pinnick’s name has never been mentioned at all.
“A very thorough forensic audit has to be conducted to cleanse CAF and I can boldly say that Pinnick is a man with integrity and has never been involved in any form of corruption, whether financial or material,” he wrapped up.
At the CAF 41st General Assembly held in Cairo last Thursday, Amaju Pinnick was not proposed to return as CAF 1st vice president by CAF supremo, Ahmad.
D.R Congo’s Constant Omari was upgraded to that position. Pinnick, does remain a member of the Organizing Committee for FIFA competitions.
