Nigeria’s foremost sports marketing outfit, Pamodzi has congratulated President of Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Melvin Pinnick on his election into the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) Executive Council.
Chief Executive Officer of Pamodzi, Mike Itemuagbor, said in a statement yesterday that Pinnick’s election into the decision making organ of world governng body for football was a reward for his hardwork and dedication to the development of football in Nigeria and the African continent.
“I wholeheartedly congratulate Amaju Pinnick on his well-deserved election. The manner of his victory shows his popularity among his colleagues in the Confederation of African Football (CAF) executive council and congress.”
“At Pamodzi we are not surprised by the giant leap Pinnick has made since the begining of the last decade, rising from being the Chairman of Delta State Football Association and later Chairman, Delta State Sports Commission in 2010 before his election as President of Nigeria Football Federation and later one of CAF’s Vice Presidents.
“Like Leonardo da Vinci said, people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things. This Pinnick has demonstrated it and his leadership of Nigeria Football Federation has opened up the federation to corporate Nigeria,” said Itemuagbor in the statement.
The Pamodzi boss thanked the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari and the Sports Minister, Sunday Dare for the unflinching support given to the NFF President and congratulates both and indeed Nigerians on his success.
“This victory is for Nigerians. Pinnick is a symbol of Nigerians as a hardworking, intelligent and honest people. It is a big boost to our image as a nation that we have men and women of great honour and intellect who can compete for positions worldwide and be successful,” the Pamodzi boss concluded.
