President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick has responded to criticisms leveled against him for preferring to be in England watching Sunday’s FA Community Shield showdown when various national teams were involved in crucial Olympic Games qualifiers.

The NFF chief was spotted with new coach of the Nigeria senior national team, Sunday Oliseh, at the Wembley stadium watching Arsenal’s 1-0 triumph over reigning Premier League champions Chelsea in the 2015-16 campaign curtain raiser.

That was followed with heavy backlash from fans of Nigerian football who are apparently baffled by Pinnick’s decision to abandon the Super Falcons and the Nigeria Under-23 – both of whom were locked in crucial Olympic qualifying games at the same time on Sunday- to travel to London.

Pinnick took to his official Twitter account to clarify his ‘supposed’ motive for embarking on the journey to England.

He claims he was on a business trip to discuss with some “would-be sponsors.” Those torrents of tweets via his handle @PinnickAmaju have been highlighted in this report.

While the NFF president was away in Wembley, the Falcons crashed out of the qualifying series for the 2016 Olympic Games at the expense of Equatorial Guinea; however, coach Samson Siasia-tutored Dream Team VI drew goalless in Pointe-Noire to scale Congo’s hurdle into the 2015 Caf Under-23 Championship.
