Today you are known world wide in the administration of football. The path has been very rough, but you have remained focused and prayerful. I know you have a lot to offer the world of football.

Thanks for letting our youths know that if you are focused and work hard on your chosen career, God will always make a way for you. Congrats once more Amaju Pinnick !!!” the former governor said.
