President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick has been relieved from his role as a vice-president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
Naija News reports that Pinnick who was relieved of his duties was replaced with South Africa’s Danny Jordaan.
Pinnick had served as the first vice-president of Caf since July 2018.
As at the time of this report, the reason for the change in CAF’s leadership that affected Pinnick is still yet to be known.
Pinnick’s exit means a reshuffling of Ahmad’s vice-presidents, with Constant Omari of DR Congo and Moroccan Faouzi Lekjaa moving up from second and third vice-president respectively.
Jordaan, who played a key role at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa – the only time the tournament has ever been played on the continent – will now act as third vice-president.
