Pinnick is looking to unseat the incumbent and long standing member, Anjorin Moucharafou who also heads the Benin Republic Football Federation .

Ghana Football Association (GFA) Kwesi Nyantakyi and Anjorin Moucharafou of Benin FA are currently representing Zone 3 (Zone West B), which covers Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Togo, Chad, Cote d’Ivoire and Niger.

Nyantakyi, who is also on the FIFA council, will be open for re-election on March 16, 2017.

In September last year, Pinnick was not endorsed for elections into the FIFA Council.
