Sports CAF Rejects Pinnick’s Nomination For FIFA Seat


Social Member
CAF has refused to endorse Amaju Pinnick’s nomination, which would have enabled him to contest for a FIFA council seat later this month.


The football body has announced seven possible candidates that will contest for the elections into the FIFA Council scheduled for September 29.

They are: Almamy Kabele Camara (Guinea); Suketu Patel (Sychelles); Kwesi Nyantakyi (Ghana); Ahmad (Madagascar); Augustin Senghor (Senegal); Hamidou Djibrilla (Niger) and Chabur Goc Alei (South Sudan).

The seven candidates will undergo the FIFA integrity test, before their names are finally ratified for the ballot.

Only on Tuesday, Pinnick admitted that he was desperate to get into either CAF or FIFA.
