Pinnick should resign now —Ex-NFF chieftain

Following a growing list of failures, president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Mr Amaju Pinnick has been asked to quit or face impeachment and if all these failed, Nigerians should chase out the entire NFF executive committee.

Former NFF disciplinary committee vice-chairman Iyke Igbokwe told AfricanFootball.com that Pinnick should resign honourably.

In March, Nigeria failed to qualify for a second straight AFCON.

Last month, the country’s U-20 team, the Flying Eagles, also failed to qualify for the U20 AFCON in Zambia, before last weekend, the Golden Eaglets crashed out of the qualifiers for the U-17 AFCON.

“He should resign as NFF president by the next 24 hours. And if he failed to do so, the executive committee should impeach him and where they too fail to do so, Nigerians should rise up and chase them away.

“All our teams will not be in action in Africa next year – the Super Eagles, the Flying Eagles and now the Golden Eaglets. He dded: “When the Flying Eagles crashed out, the first vice-president (Seyi Akinwunmi) apologised on behalf of the board.

“Should we continue to accept apologies from these people? No. We should chase them out.”
