Recently, the NFF president has been embattled with his position facing threats. Last week, a directive was given by the federal government through the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development asking him to step down from his position as NFF chairman.

However, the past week wasn’t all that bad for Pinnick as he got appointed as the new first vice president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF). The appointment came few weeks after Kwesi Nyantakyi of the Ghana Football Federation resigned after a video showed him taking bribe.
