The President of the Nigerian Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick has hailed President Buhari and says the President deserves to be in the Guinness Book of Records for supporting the football federation.
Not sure if Mr. Pinnick knows what the Guinness Book of Records is really about, the NFF leader said to journalists after the Golden Eaglets’ World Cup victory,
“Yes, it is a success story as you just mentioned, but it would not have ended that way without the great support that the Nigeria Football Federation continues to receive from the President Buhari-led Federal Government.
In fact, the Nigeria Football Federation is dedicating this triumph to President Buhari. He is a man of history. He was there when the first set won the trophy in 1985 as military Head of State; now he is here as civilian President when the Class of 2015 emerged victorious. Seriously speaking, I don’t think there is any Head of State or Government in the entire universe who has this honour, and for this, our PMB deserves a place in the Guinness Book of Records.”
Pinnick, whose one-year administration has been successful so far insisted on Monday that the masterstroke for the Eaglets’ confident and determined approach was President Buhari’s skype call to the team a day earlier.
The NFF president assured that his administration would be strongly involved in the players’ development, unlike what happened in the past.
