Aisha Falode tipped to head women’s league

30 November 2015, 19:39Israel Ojoko

Port Harcourt - It was back-slapping galore last Friday in Port Harcourt as the South South Congress of the Nigeria Football Federation met to address pressing football issues ahead of elections into some arms of the football fraternity in the country.

After robust discussion of members from Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Cross River, Delta, Edo and River State, the congress unanimously agreed that first rate women’s sportscaster and football administrator, Aisha Falode, be adopted as the zone’s candidate for the forthcoming Nigerian Women’s League election.

The communiqué described Falode as not only passionate and knowledgeable about the game, with cognate international experience, they also believed she has the capacity to help revive the dwindling fortunes of women football in the country by attracting sponsorship for the game, instead of the present situation that has seen complaints being hauled at the NFF leadership for not providing money for the women’s game in the country.

The South South NFF Congress urged other geo-political zones to join it in reviving the Women’s game in the country. “We are sure our brothers and sisters from other zones will join hands with us to give new direction to Women’s football in the country as it has suffered in recent times.”
