Ogunjobi set for grand return

There are rumours making the rounds that disgraced former Nigeria Football Federation, NFF board member and head of technical committee, Taiwo Ogunjobi may return Nigerian football administration through the League.

Ogunjobi may be “installed” as the new chairman of the Nigeria Premier League, NPL board following the annulment of the last elections that ushered in Davidson Owumi as NPL boss.

A source within the NPL revealed to naijafootball247.com that they have uncovered a plan by the NFF to bring in Taiwo Ogunjobi to take the place of Owumi.

“There is a cabal in the NFF who plan to package an Ogunjobi agenda for the NPL chairmanship routing him through Crown FC where he is on the board,” our source said.

“The plan is for him to come in as chairman of chairmen of the club owners and then present him as NPL chairman but I want to believe that the club owners will fight this move and we have already secretly sent messages to all club chairmen on this development.”

NFF head of Technical department, Christopher Green had already told naijafootbal247.com that Owumi may not be eligible to re-contest since he was not fit to contest the elections in the first place.

“We are not starting a new electoral process, we just annulled a previous election and only those who contested before can re-run; but for Owumi, he has already been knocked out of the race so that may just leave room for only Victor Baribote Rumsen and Akin Akinbobola,” Green said.

His next statement however knocked out any question of Taiwo Ogunjobi or any other new comer coming into the race.

“I simply do not see how any new comer can enter this race because we have not called for fresh elections, we only annulled the chairmanship elections so only those that contested previously can join the polls,” Green said.

Already text messages are being passed around to so called football stakeholders warning on the plan to return Ogunjobi to top management position in Nigerian football.

The NFF have said re-election holds on or before January 12, 2011.
