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 insisted intentions should be secret until the 16 March election.
“I think we should conduct ourselves in a decent manner and let our votes count on the day,” Green told BBC Sport.
“This is democracy and it’s going to be a secret ballot – we have not to talk.”
Earlier this week, Pinnick told BBC Sport 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.
“That’s really not the position (of the NFF),” argued Green.
“Do not think the board sat, deliberated and decided that we should go for a particular candidate – no, we’ve not got there yet.”
