By Andah John
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) says it has given its president, Amaju Pinnick, the mandate to vote for a candidate of his choice in the Confederation of African Football (Caf) presidential election.
Madagascar’s Football Association boss Ahmad Ahmad is challenging incumbent president Issa Hayatou for the continent’s football’s top position on 16 March in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Media and Publicity Committee Chairman of the NFF, Suleiman Yahaya-Kwande, said on Thursday that Pinnick had the Federation’s mandate to cast his vote for a candidate, who will best serve Nigeria’s interest.
”Every single member of the board spoke on the issue and expressed support for the NFF President, Amaju Pinnick, to use his discretion and vote for that candidate who will best serve Nigeria’s interest during the election.
