Loading… The NFF boss made a number of trips to England to convince the players and despite his closeness to Abraham’s father, the striker went to play for the Three Lions. Pinnick, however, has stated the federation will not plead with any player to don the Nigerian jersey and explained in the case of Saka, there are a number of quality players doing well for the Super Eagles in his position, although if he desires to play for the country he would be given an opportunity. “Saka is an excellent prospect but we have other players in his position who are playing so well,” Pinnick said in an Instagram Live chat. “We have talents everywhere so we won’t beg people to play for Nigeria. It is about ardour and fervour, If it’s their desire and they merit it, they’ll be given a chance to represent Nigeria.” Nigeria are three-time African champions, after claiming the Africa Cup of Nations in 1980, 1994 and 2013. The Super Eagles finished third in the 2019 edition of the competition in Egypt behind Senegal and Algeria, who claimed the diadem. The West Africans are currently top of Group L of the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers with six points after victories over the Republic of Benin and Lesotho. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president, Amaju Pinnick, has insisted the country is blessed with talent and will not beg Arsenal starlet,Bukayo Saka, or any player to represent the Super Eagles. The 18-year-old has been in fine form since breaking into the Gunners first team and this season he has become a key member of Mikel Arteta’s side. The versatile player has scored four goals and provided 11 assists in 37 appearances across all competitions for the Emirates Stadium outfit in the current campaign. His stock has continued to rise following his eye-catching performances and he recently extended his contract to ward off other clubs who are interested in signing him. The winger was born in England to Nigerian parents and has represented the European country at U16, U17, U18 and U19 levels but since he has not yet featured for the Three Lions, he is still eligible to switch his allegiance to the West Africans. Pinnick has failed in the past to persuade Chelsea duo of Fikayo Tomori and Tammy Abraham to play for the Super Eagles. read also:Midfield Battle: Saka Among Arsenal Players In Contention Against Man CityAdvertisement Promoted Content8 Things That Will Happen If An Asteroid Hits EarthThe Best Cars Of All TimeThis Guy Photoshopped Himself Into Celeb Pics And It’s HystericalBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterIs This The Most Delicious Food In The World?8 Most Beautiful Chinese WomenImpressive Caricatures Of Marvel Characters By Xi DingThe Highest Paid Football Players In The World5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadeInsane 3D Spraying Skills Turn In Incredible Street Art
“It has been a memorable journey for all of us involved in this project. For a decade, we have volunteered to support this project which gives hope to the hopeless and makes the weak strong.” He said.“The Foundation has supported less privileged and underserved people and communities facing challenges particularly in the areas of health and education. It has awarded scholarships, built e-libraries, sickbays, organized free medical outreach programs and, more importantly, educated and mentored Nigerian children and youths,” he added.He further explained that the achievements would not have been possible, were it not for the magnanimity and support shown to the Foundation by corporate organizations and kind-hearted individuals during the yearly Charity Golf Tournaments. Hence, as a mark of gratitude, this year’s 10th edition would be devoted to showcasing the various intervention projects that have been made possible with the support received from donors.He also, confirmed that the Golf Section of Ikoyi Club 1938, and the Ikoyi Golf Community, in Lagos, have been very supportive, having adopted the Foundation as a key ally in deploying Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities.A member of the Organizing Committee, Ebi Pinnick, also commented: “The 2020 DOAMF Charity Golf Tournament is a way of consolidating the trust patrons have in the Foundation” reiterating that “the organizing team remains optimistic that this year, there would be more interventions that will build on and surpass our previous efforts in the last nine years.”The qualifier for this year’s edition has been fixed for February 1, 2020, at the Golf Section of Ikoyi Club 1938 in Lagos.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram The Daniel Ogechi Akujobi Memorial (DOAM) Foundation’s annual Charity Golf Tournament enters its tenth year and preparations are ongoing to make the 2020 event a milestone edition.According to DOAMF, this year’s edition would showcase in retrospect, all the projects (in health and education) that the Foundation has executed with proceeds of its charity golf tournaments in the last nine years.Pat Bassey, who has been the Coordinator of the organizing committee of the event since inception, said over 80,000 lives have been touched, adding that a significant part of the funding for the various life-changing projects have come from the annual charity golf tournament.
