Amaju Pinnick’s replacement revealed

DR Congo’s Constant Omari has replaced Amaju Pinnick, as the 1st vice-president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).

Pinnick, was on Thursday, removed from the role which he has occupied since July 2018.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) chief took over Ghana’s Kwesi Nyantakyi, who resigned due to allegations of corrupt practices.

Morocco’s Faouzi Lekjaa and South Africa’s Danny Jordaan are second and third vice-presidents respectively.

Pinnick explained the expiry of his tenure in a statement.

“By now, you must have seen an official statement from the events of today’s CAF Congress in Egypt. To reiterate; the term of the 1st, 2nd & 3rd Vice-Presidents of the Confederation of African Football expires after two years, in line with Article 22(4) of the CAF statutes.

“My renewal was not proposed by the CAF President and I’m in total agreement with that decision as well.

“I accepted the decision of the President as it aligned with my own views, having considered matters surrounding the administration of African Football which has dovetailed into the Nigerian Football space.

“I’m still a member of the CAF Executive Committee though and I’ll continue to work to ensure that football on the continent gets its deserved value.

“It has been an excellent opportunity to serve as the Number Two football administrator on the continent and my commitment to the game is perpetual while my support for my colleagues in the Executive Committee remains steadfast.

“Hearty congratulations to Omari, Lekja and Danny on their new roles as 1st, 2nd & 3rd Vice-Presidents respectively,” he tweeted.
