NFF: Peterside Joins Race To Succeed Pinnick

Pastor Peterside Idah, an ex-international goalkeeper, and former Media Officer of the Super Eagles has joined the race to replace Amaju Pinnick as the president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

Gatekeepers News reports that the race to fill the hot seat became more interesting after incumbent President Pinnick confirmed that he would not be standing for re-election.

Pinnick, who is a FIFA council member, CAF executive member dropped out of the race to extend his tenure in NFF after Ghana kicked Nigeria out of the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.

His announcement has therefore sparked the interest of many to occupy the number one football position in Nigeria.

Idah, who announced his interest to succeed Pinnick had played for BCC Lions, Enyimba, and Moroka Swallows of South Africa is currently enjoying the full backing of many ex-internationals, administrators, and football fans.

With his staunch credential and experience in the round-leather game and also his administrative acumen, Idah’s entrance has raised the bar for the office of NFF President.
