President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, has vowed to reform football in the country.
Pinnick made the vow on Thursday after he broke the re-election jinx to lead the Glass House for another four-year term.
After being declared the winner of the election, the former Delta State FA Chairman spoke on his plans for Nigerian football.
“First of the things that we want to do is to initiate reforms for our statutes. There are some things that we need to put in our statutes that will reflect reconciliation,” he said.
The NFF boss described his opponents in the election – Aminu Maigari, Taiwo Ogunjobi, and Chinedu Okoye – as his brothers, insisting that there is no winner or loser in the election.
While promising to work towards peace and reconciliation in the Nigerian football governing body, Pinnick described his victory as a turning point.
“This is a turning point. Like I said, there is no victor there is no vanquished. Everybody is a winner but people should now know that we need to develop football beyond the narrow confines of ethnicity, primitivism, nonchalance, lackadaisical attitude and mediocrity,” he said.
