Vice President Nigeria Football Federation, Barrister Seyi Akinwunmi says permutations around the September 2022 presidential race are a distraction as he has not declared interest to contest.
Akinwunmi, who’s also the Chairman Lagos State Football Association, in a statement on Monday debunked the FAKE NEWS that he has declared for the NFF Presidency seat.
“While there is nothing wrong with me being interested in being President, I certainly have not declared any interest and no such discussion was held at our zonal meeting.
“I am not one to jump the gun in anything I do, so the issue of running for Presidency is not on the front burner.
“Some people are trying to distract and disunite us because they see that we are united.
“This old-style of blackmail cannot work with us as we in the South-West Zone are focused on the various issues raised in our communique,” concludes the astute football administrator.
