The Nigeria Football Federation President Amaju Pinnick insists his led board is committed to build a transparent and accountable federation which the people are free to relate with on football and financial matters.
Amaju Pinnick who is the first Nigerian to be re–elected as thepresident of the Nigerian Football Governing body agreed that a transparent federation will attract more sponsors to the game in the country.
“We are accountable to the people. We want to build a very robust football federation that is quite interactive, where people can even criticize us constructively and advise us on steps to take, to be much more successful.
“Sponsors do not have anything to lose if they leave us alone. So we need to convince them and tell them why they should put money into football.“
The CAF first vice President revealed the sponsors are happy with the financial details of federation after it was made available to the public.
“They were very happy seeing our financial details of the year published in various newspapers. What more proof do you need to show that you are working with people with credibility?”
Pinnick denied the claim that the Federation careless about the Super Falcons and other National team except the Super Eagles, but admits they didn’t start well with the Falcons.
“I only make people understand that there are some points (like the 208 World Cup) where we need to focus on our main brand, the Super Eagles. The Super Falcons are the most successful female football team in World Football, not just in Africa. They have nine African titles, Germany has eight in Europe and the United States has eight in CONCACAF.“
“I take responsibility that we did not star well with the Super Falcons, but so far, we have made them happy and every promise we have made to them has been fulfilled,” he said.
