He said,”While there is nothing wrong with me being interested in being NFF President, I certainly have not declared any interest.

“No such discussion was held at our Southwest zonal meeting.

“I am not one to jump the gun in anything I do, so the issue of running for Presidency is not on the front burner.

“Some people are trying to distract and disunite us because they see that we are united.

“This old-style of blackmail cannot work with us as we in the South-West Zone are focused on the various issues raised in our communique.”

No candidate has made public declaration to take over from Pinnick when his tenure expires.
