First Vice President of Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Barrister Seyi Akinkunmi has debunked rumored interest in the NFF presidency.
Bar. Akinkunmi who is also the Chairman, of Lagos State Football Association is currently serving his second term as number two person under Amaju Pinnick-led football federation.
The distinguished legal luminary stated that his declaration which was culled from the South West Football stakeholders meeting held last week was a mere fabrication.
Akinwunmi who heads the federation’s committee on youth development said the meeting held last week was not about his intention to vie for the office of the President and such was not discussed at the meeting.
“You may have read that I had declared an intention to run for the President of the NFF.
“While there is nothing wrong with me being interested in being President, I certainly have not declared any interest and no such discussion was had at our zonal meeting. I am not one to jump the gun in anything I do, so the issue of running for Presidency is not on the front burner.”
“Some people are trying to distract and disunite us because they see that we are united. This old style of blackmail cannot work with us as we in the South-West Zone are focused on the various issues raised in our communique,” he concluded.
