Amaju Pinnick, newly elected president of the Nigeria Football Association, NFA, has said that his administration would ensure that Nigerian football is ranked among the world’s best.
Speaking with journalists in Abuja on Friday, Pinnick said that his aim was to apply scientific methods in the running of the country’s football.
“We have been in-scripted by God to come and redefine football in Nigeria; we want to apply science in the running of football in line with modern trend. We want to get people to our stadium; we want to create a comprehensive new development programme,” Pinnick said.
Pinick, who said his aim was to have a more sustainable football culture, stressed that the country would soon be ranked among top countries with rich soccer traditions.
“We want to build Nigerian football to have a more sustainable football culture where Nigeria will always aim in pole positions in every tournament. Victory is not only defined by winning trophies; victory is defined by having a strong viral sustainable culture of football where Nigeria will now be ranked the same with England,’’ he added.
