Ogunjobi Eyes NFF President’s Job

Chairman of Nigeria National League (NNL) side, Prime FC, Taiwo Ogunjobi has signified his intention to become the next president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
Ogunjobi, who was the erstwhile secretary general of the NFF, would want to succeed Aminu Maigari who was kicked out of office last month unceremoniously.
It would be recalled that Ogunjobi was handed a 10-year ban by the Maigari led board, but he is among the candidates who have submitted forms for the August 26 NFF elective congress.
Ogunjobi was banned last year after being accused by former youth international, Kayode Olarenwaju, who alleged that Ogunjobi forced him to sign for Ivorian club, ASEC Mimosas.
Despite being suspended for 10 years from all footballing activities, Ogunjobi exclusively divulged to supersport.com that he is eligible to contest for the NFF presidential election.
It was also learned from a source at the Glass House in Abuja that the ban imposed on Ogunjobi would soon be lifted.
“Yes, it is true that I want to return, but I don’t want to say anything more than that for now,” Ogunjobi said to supersport.com
Meanwhile, impeached NFF president, Maigari is also interested in returning to office and is also running.
