THE Transition Committee Chairman of Warri South Local Government Area, Dr. Augustine Uroye has described the election of Delta State Sports Commission Chairman, Amaju Pinnick as the new President of Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, as an inspiration to all Deltans.
The Warri South council boss in a statement in Warri, as part of the 54th independence anniversary of Nigeria, noted that the overwhelming victory of Mr. Pinnick in the keenly contested election coming on the heels of leadership crisis that recently bedeviled the NFF was an indication that people of Warri and indeed Deltans can aspire to the highest electoral position in Nigeria, irrespective of their minority status.
According to Uroye, the caliber of contestants in the NFF election which produced Mr. Pinnick makes the victory of the Delta State FA Chairman
“more enthralling and very inspiring”.
Adding that Mr. Pinnick’s penchant for success in sports which has seen him leading Delta State to the summit severally at the National Sports festival as well as Warri Wolves Football Club to continental competitions is a testament that Nigerian football will experience a reign of continuous growth in the years ahead.
He commended Government Emmanuel Uduaghan-led administration for hosting the NFF election and for supporting the NFA boss in his strives for excellence.
