Odibo commends Pinnick

A Patron of the Nigeria Football Supporters Club and a Chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party in Delta State, Barrister Moses Odibo has commended the Amaju led NFF Board for accepting responsibility for Nigeria’s failure to qualify for the Nation’s Cup and urged Nigerians to put that behind us and fashion a way to move the game forward.

Odibo who spoke in Warri immediately after the match said Amaju has behaved like a leader and should now settle down to do real business as Nigerians expect much from him.

According to Odibo, the country’s failure to qualify is very unfortunate but Nigerians can learn from it and move forward.


Odibo also used the opportunity to commend the National Assembly for trying to repeal decree 101 and urged them to do everything to fast track it so that the President can assent to it, noting that this is what Amaju led NFF needed to really do a thorough work to salvage the situation.

“ I want to commend the Amaju led NFF for accepting responsibility for our ouster and that is the way to lead by example.”

It shows that he is a leader and must now sit down with his board to find a way out of this mess. It is unfortunate that we did not qualify but we can learn from this and move the round leather game forward. Nigerians expect much from him and he cannot afford to disappoint.”

On the various petitions calling for the annulment of the election that brought in Amaju led NFF, Odibo appealed to those who are aggrieved to purge themselves of the idea and join hands with them to move the game forward.

“Elections at any giving time must go with some people not satisfied but that does not mean it must be cancelled. I want to appeal to those aggrieved to see how they can join hands with Amaju led NFF to move the game forward. It may be their turn tomorrow to occupy the seat. This is not the tim to start dissipating our energy on how to nullify that election but what we should be concern about now is how to move on from this present situation” said Odibo.
