Minister Says only Nigerians can force Pinnick to resign
Nigeria’s Sports minister Solomon Dalung has said that it is Nigerians that can mount pressure on president of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick and force him to resign over the Super Eagles’ failure to qualify for Gabon 2017.
Dalung stated this at a press conference on Friday where he blamed the NFF for the Super Eagle’s failure to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations for two consecutive times.
“I can’t force Amaju Pinnick to resign.
“I will advise that a more persuasive army to put pressure on his conscience, so that he can reason with you.
“Except if you say I should resign, I will reflect and see whether I’ve acted in any way that I deserve to leave, then I will quit.
“If you are asking the NFF president to resign and directing the question to me that’s not fair because I’m not Amaju.
“The hiring and firing of coaches itself is a problem and when shall we have an end to it.
“I’ve always argued that if the coaches have always been wrong and NFF has been right? The number of coaches they have fired showed something is wrong with NFF,” Dalung said.
