Nigeria Football Federation president Amaju Pinnick has been criticised for revealing who he will vote for in the Confederation of African Football presidential election.
NFF Executive Committee member Chris Green has insisted intentions should be secret until the 16 March election.
Earlier this week, Pinnick disclosed that the NFF would be giving its vote to Ahmad Ahmad, the Madagascar FA president who is the sole challenger to long-standing Caf president Issa Haytou.
Green is keen that Ahmad should impress his vision upon more Nigerians than just Pinnick himself – with the latter saying he was impressed by the Malagasy’s manifesto – before the country chooses its candidate.
The elections to determine who will rule African football will take place in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa.
