–Ex-scribe congratulates her on CAF Award
Former Secretary-General of Nigeria Football Federation and erstwhile chairman of the body’s technical committee, Chief Taiwo Ogunjobi, has urged newly crowned African Women Footballer of the Year, Asisat Oshoala, to return to high school for her to be academically equipped for the future.
The chairman of Prime Football Club, opined that he was shocked when he knew the Rivers Angels goal-poacher is a Secondary School (SS2) drop-out.
“I was shocked the day I heard Asisat Oshoala is a Secondary School drop-out despite her level of intelligence,” the Pillar of Sports in State of Osun said.
Ogunjobi, while giving Oshoala a fatherly advice said now that her ovation is loud, she should return to school and further her education.
“Education is important, football is temporary and if you don’t leave football, football will leave you one day. I played football to the highest level (Green Eagles) but education was what I fell back on after my active football career.”
“We live in a society where the ability of an individual to be successful depends largely on their education. I am using this medium to appeal to Asisat Oshoala to return to school so as to get her future properly secured.”
Oshoala whose dream was to become a lawyer, incurred the wrath of her parents when she dropped out of school to pursue a football career.
Meanwhile, the former Sole Administrator of Shooting Stars Sports Club of Ibadan, congratulated Oshoala for emerging as the African Women Player and Young Player of the year 2014.
