The newly elected executive board member of the Nigeria Football Federation Alhaji Ganiyu Majekodunmi has promised to further develop Football in the grassroots, adding that the future of football in Nigeria is brighter than anyone can imagine.
In an interview immediately after he emerged unopposed as an executive board member of the NFF from the south west, the Ogun State Football Association chairman noted that it is imperative to do more at this point, describing his latest position as a call to service.
“Firstly, I will say the responsibility of a responsible man is more responsibility, this is an opportunity to further ensure Football is taken to an enviable height in this part of the world”
Majekodunmi congratulated Amaju Melvin Pinnick and other elected members of the NFF on their success, adding that the team is ready to work hands in glove in order to achieve the set goals.
“Let me state categorically that Football has won, nobody lost, it is a very big family, decisions have been taken and I say congratulations to everyone who emerged.
When quizzed about how he intends to develop Football in Ogun State, the Ogun FA boss said.
“It is certainly a plus, our developmental programmes will continue in a new dimension, what it means is that our under 13, under 15 and under 18 competitions will have the presence of the NFF and we can further preach the gospel of our initiatives to the whole Nigeria”
“We have in place a partnership that is working with Nigeria’s leading bet company Bet 9ja for one of our state competitions, so it’s a win win situation at this point in time.
