The President-General of the Nigeria Football Supporters’ Club Alhaji Rafiu Ladipo, said football in the country has witnessed a decline under the leadership of Amaju Pinnick.
“He achieved a lot for himself and zero for Nigerian football, said Ladipo in an interview with The Punch.
Ladipo backed the Federal Government’s decision to obey the Supreme Court ruling removing the Nigeria Football Federation board headed by Pinnick.
“We were the defending champions of the Chile 2015 FIFA Under-17 World Cup but we failed to qualify for the next edition in India, Ladipo told Punch correspondent in Russia.
“We lost our first qualifying match of the 2019 AFCON at home to Bafana Bafana, and now we have failed to reach the second round of the World Cup.”
The club chief added, “ It’s good riddance to bad rubbish. Pinnick sees everybody in Nigerian football as a novice. His board didn’t care for those who risked their lives to come from Nigeria to support the Eagles here in Russia.
Chris Giwa, who won at a parallel NFF poll on August 26, 2014, has since assumed control of the national football house.
