Nigerian supporters club reacts to Pinnick’s exit, FIFA ban

The President General of the Nigeria Football Supporters Club, Dr Rafiu Ladipo has supported the new leadership of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

Speaking from Russia, Dr Ladipo said the exit of Pinnick was a good development for football in Nigeria, adding that his tenure brought no achievements and development to Nigeria football.

The Supporter’s Club boss also blamed Pinnick for Nigeria’s defeat against Argentina.

In response to FIFA’s possible ban on Nigeria after the leadership tussle rocking the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), erupted again on Monday, Ladipo called for the ban, stating that Nigeria will come out better.

“Pinnick’s exit is good for our football, it’s a welcome development. His exit is good riddance to bad rubbish. Four years of Pinnick was motion without movement, no meaningful achievement. We failed qualification for AFCON back to back and the current campaign is tottering towards non-qualification.

“In the U-17, where we were the defending champions, the Golden Eaglets couldn’t qualify. In the U-20, we went to Sudan, defeated them but due to bad administration, we lost 3-4 at home and were ousted.

“In Russia, he gave us only 200 tickets for the Argentina game and that was the reason we were dwarfed by the supporters of Argentina.

“We should not mind the so-called FIFA, let them ban us. It’s time we restructure our football, after the ban, FIFA will reinstate us and the country will be better for it,” Dr Ladipo said.

Meanwhile, Chris Giwa, Monday evening, resumed as the President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) following the sack of Amaju Pinnick.
