“On behalf of my management, players, technical crew, fans and the entire Kano Pillars football club family, I congratulate you on your election as a member of the FIFA Executive Council.
“Considering your vast experience, your election into the world football governing body is a great achievement to the football family, President Muhammadu Buhari and the country as a whole,” he stated.
Shuaibu commended the executive committee members of the Nigeria Football Federation for working hard and ensuring that this historic achievement was recorded during their time.
He urged Nigerians, particularly the football family, to continue supporting and praying for Mr Pinnick to succeed.
