CAF rejects Pinnick’s nomination for FIFA seat

Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president, Amaju Pinnick, will not vie for a FIFA council seat later this month after the Confederation of African Football (CAF) rejected his nomination for a place in the football’s world governing body.
The elections into the FIFA Council hold on September 29 and CAF has shortlisted seven candidates for the polls.
They are Almamy Kabele Camara (Guinea), Suketu Patel (Seychelles), Kwesi Nyantakyi (Ghana), Ahmad (Madagascar), Augustin Senghor (Senegal), Hamidou Djibrilla (Niger) and Chabur Goc Alei (South Sudan).
The candidates will undergo the FIFA integrity test, before their names are finally ratified for the ballot, reports.
