CAF appoints Amaju Pinnick 1st vice-president

President of the Nigeria Football Federation Amaju Pinnick was on Thursday appointed as 1st Vice-President of the Confederation of African Football. The position became vacant after erstwhile President of the Ghana Football Association Kwesi Nyantakyi resigned from office in June following an undercover exposition of corrupt practices in the GFA.

In a letter to the members of the confederation, which was signed by its Secretary General, Amr Fahmy, CAF announced that Pinnick’s appointment would be ratified at the continental body’s next Executive Committee meeting in September. Pinnick was most recently a member of CAF’s Executive Committee.
