Amaju Pinnick will on September 30, 2022 step down from his position as the NFF president following two tenures of four years that have seen him make significant decisions on behalf of Nigerian football since 2014.
Pinnick has been Nigeria’s longest-serving federation boss, spending 8-years on the job longer than Sunday Dankaro (1974–1980), as well as his predecessor Aminu Maigari who spent only one tenure of four years from 2010 to 2014.

According to Pinnick at NFF’s recently concluded Annual General Assembly (AGA), the 2022 election will hold in Benin City on the 30th of September.
The sale of the nomination forms will commence on August 29 till September 8, with the aspirants, screened between the 9th and 12th of September.
The electoral committee will then publish the successful names on September 12 before releasing a final list of candidates on September 19.
