Pinnick is a close ally of CAF boss Ahmad who he backed before the election which ousted longtime boss Issa Hayatou.

The NFF boss at the CAF elections in March 2017 won a seat on the Executive Committee of CAF, defeating long-standing member Anjorin Moucharafou who is also the head of Benin Republic Football Federation.

In May, he was appointed the chairman of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) and into the Media Committees of CAF.
