Amaju Pinnick has been re-elected president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) for a second four-year term. Pinnick, who is also the first Vice-President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), won 34 votes to beat former NFF president Aminu Maigari, who received eight votes.

Taiwo Ogunjobi, now former general secretary of the NFF polled two votes, while there were no votes for amateur club owner Chinedu Okoye.

The majority of the previous executive committee was returned on the promise of continuity.

Pinnick’s first tenure was characterised by a consistent power tussle with Chris Giwa, who also claimed leadership of the country’s football four years ago.
