Abuja - Delta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, has congratulated the newly-elected president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnic.

The governor described the development as a continuation of Delta’s supremacy in sports.

In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary Sunny Ogefere, the governor said the NFF President had maintained the sports excellence tradition for which the state was known.

He noted that under Amaju’s leadership of sports, the state had retained as well as improved on its dominance of sports in the country.

According to him, the victory of Pinnic at the NFF polls in Warri further reinforced the state's belief that the administration’s investment in sports was not in vain.

“Amaju has shown traits of commitment, resourcefulness, dedication and leadership right from when he joined the DFA (Delta Football Association) as a member and later as chairman of the Association up to when he emerged as the chairman of the State Sports Commission," Uduaghan said.

"Besides, Amaju has performed creditably well to date and I have no doubt in my mind that he will excel in this new assignment and take football in Nigeria to an enviable heights,” he stated.

He urged Amaju to remain focused in the new assignment and ensure as a matter of priority that he reconciled everyone to forge one united front for better success.
