The President, Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, on Friday, debunked the rumour making the rounds linking him with a third term bid after his current tenure expires.
There has been pressure from Nigerian football stakeholders on him to resign immediately, following the Super Eagles’ failure to qualify for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
Speaking on Arise TV, Pinnick said his time in the glass house has taken a toll on his relationship with his family.
“I’m eligible to run based on the statutes. Do I want to run? It’s a no no, my family is very key to me and they said it’s taking a toll on me and the family. They believed that I’ve done my best and it’s time to move on . It’s a regrettable decision, but it’s the best,” he said.
The Delta State born football administrator has been in charge of the country’s football since 2014.
