The Confederation of African Football has rejected the nomination of Nigeria Football Federation president Amaju Pinnick for a seat at the FIFA Council.
Ahead of the election into the FIFA Council on September 29, CAF shortlisted seven candidates, with no Nigerian represented.
On the shortlist are Almamy Kabele Camara (Guinea); Suketu Patel (Sychelles); Kwesi Nyantakyi (Ghana); Ahmad (Madagascar); Augustin Senghor (Senegal); Hamidou Djibrilla (Niger) and Chabur Goc Alei (South Sudan).
They will now undergo an integrity test before their names are ratified for the ballot.
